Rappahannock News - - CLASSIFIEDS -

Macy Lee Mont­gomery, a se­nior at Rap­pa­han­nock County High School, was awarded the 2018 Vir­ginia School Board As­so­ci­a­tion’s Ex­hibitors Schol­ar­ship.

Funded by ex­hibit­ing com­pa­nies at the VSBA’s an­nual con­ven­tion, the schol­ar­ship was made avail­able to spring 2019 grad­u­at­ing se­niors who have served as stu­dent school board rep­re­sen­ta­tives.

Macy has served as stu­dent rep­re­sen­ta­tive to the Rap­pa­han­nock County School Board since Au­gust 2018.

“It is an honor to be able to re­ceive the VSBA Ex­hibitors Schol­ar­ship,” says Macy. “This schol­ar­ship will as­sist me in the next phase of my life. Mone­tar­ily, the schol­ar­ship funds will go to­ward col­lege loans, ul­ti­mately lead­ing me to­ward my ca­reer in medicine.

“Emo­tion­ally, the schol­ar­ship funds give me con­fi­dence that I will ac­com­plish this goal.”

The schol­ar­ship was awarded this past week at the VSBA An­nual Con­ven­tion in Wil­liams­burg, which brings to­gether school board mem­bers, su­per­in­ten­dents, divi­sion ad­min­is­tra­tors, and ed­u­ca­tion of­fi­cials from across the com­mon­wealth.

TUTTI FRUITY DAY!

Wakefield Coun­try Day School kicked off a canned food drive for the Rap­pa­han­nock Food Pantry, des­ig­nat­ing days of the week for themed do­na­tions by fam­i­lies, staff, and fac­ulty: Mac­a­roni Mon­day, Tuna Tues­day, Tutti Fruity Wednes­day, Thank­ful Thurs­day, and Jeans for Beans Fri­day.

When all cans were de­liv­ered to the Food Pantry, the do­nated amount weighed in at 1,175 pounds! After Pantry vol­un­teers or­ga­nized the do­na­tions from the com­mu­nity, a group of WCDS stu­dents trav­eled to the Food Pantry on Mon­day to help dis­trib­ute Thanks­giv­ing baskets to Rap­pa­han­nock fam­i­lies.
