During the first week of school, Director of Academic Support Jill Randall had the pleasure of surprising three current seniors with awards from prestigious universities in Virginia.
These awards would normally have been given out at the end of junior year but were delayed until students were able to return to campus this fall.
A huge congratulations to these hard-working students – what a great way to kick off senior year!
