Congratulations to HS students Jacob, Hannah, Paige, and Caleb for being named finalists for, or receiving, several prestigious honors:
Sophomore Jacob H. and Junior Hannah L. have been selected as state-level nominees for Virginia Governors School this summer. Hannah is a nominee for the Visual and Preforming Arts Program (violin) and Jacob is a nominee for the Academic Program (mathematics and technology). Governor’s Schools provide intensive educational experiences, with classroom and laboratory work, field studies, research, individual and group projects and performances, and seminars with noted scholars, visiting artists, and other professionals.
Juniors Hannah L. and Paige S. have been selected to attend Girls State 2023 and have received full scholarships from the local American Legion Auxiliary. A one-week interactive "government in action" experience, Girls State is a program for outstanding junior girls across the Commonwealth of Virginia.
Earlier this year, senior Caleb D. was one of 16,000 students whose score on the October PSAT/NMSQT (Practice SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test) was in the top 1 percent of scores, qualifying him as a semi-finalist for a National Merit Scholarship. We are pleased to announce that Caleb has advanced to Finalist standing in the competition. Selection of the 7,500 Merit Scholarship winners is now in progress; he will be notified later this spring of the outcome.
Join us in celebrating these students` achievements!
