|Maggie Walker students at the General Assembly on Capitol Day|
Maggie Walker student participants included, for the third consecutive year, Charles Condro '11 and Eliza Scheibe '12, and for the second consecutive year, Catherine Emblidge '11 and Patricia Menges '11. Our first time student volunteers were Corinne Bowers '13 and Julia Stanley '13. All the students did a wonderful job explaining to our state lawmakers how Virginia's governor's schools are a unique and vital part of public education in the Commonwealth.
Maggie Walker faculty and staff members, Fred Morton, Wendy Ellis and Hal Waller joined student volunteers in educating our state leaders about the value our fine schools bring to the state. A special thank you goes to Mr. Phil Tharp for arranging bus transportation for all who attended this year's event.
Parent volunteers, without whom this annual event could not take place, included Roger Bowers, Jennifer Chambers, Kim Dwyer, Ben Lewis, Anne Napps, Jane Scheibe, Capitol Day Chair, and Trish Sigler, FOVGS Chair.
