Seniors of the Month

During the months of October through May, the Isle of Wight County School Board recognizes an Outstanding Senior from each high school at a School Board meeting.  As part of the recognition program, the seniors will receive a $500 scholarship to the post-secondary school or program they will attend to further their education.

Hunter has remained active during this pandemic. He has continued his college and scholarship search while serving as the state representative for Beta at the National level. Hunter also recently has been in correspondence with NASA AERONAUTICS AND AIR & SPACE ADMINISTRATION.  He is working with them to be able to volunteer each day between his classes at school and Governor's School. Hunter is a very kind, charismatic young man that is always working to be the best him he can be.

"Hunter is one of the top students in his graduating class because of his positive attitude, work ethic, kind heart and academic achievements. I have seen Hunter go out of his way to include others that are feeling left out or who tend to keep to themselves." Yanci Williams, School Counselor.  Hunter plans to attend a Four Year University, hopefully Virginia Tech, majoring in Meteorology and Minoring in Music. He also plans on becoming a cadet through ROTC to work toward his career of commissioning as a Weather Officer in the United States Air Force.

Leah is outstanding in every area. An avid student, she challenges and questions, always seeking to grow. She is a talented forensics team member, in addition to her academic skills, which are formidable. Leah is an exceptional young woman whose goals and aspirations reach high. She attended a leadership academy at the University of Virginia this past summer, reaching, as always, to improve her skills and to ready herself for a bright future.  Leah was recently announced as a Commended Student in the 2021 National Merit Scholarship Program. 

"Leah is every teacher's dream: a self-motivated and persistent scholar who loves to learn and tackles every assignment as a personal mission. She is, as well, a champion for human rights. Social justice issues are very important to her and she's forthright in sharing her beliefs. She will achieve great things."--Luann Scott, teacher.  Her goal is to attend a 4-year university, hopefully UVA, and major in political science and eventually attend law school.
