The Ridley Scholarship Committee, in conjunction with the University of Virginia Outreach Office, welcomed nearly twenty high school seniors to Grounds to interview for Ridley scholarships. The students had the opportunity to spend time with current Ridley scholars, attend classes, and participate in group discussions with faculty and alumni. Each of the highly impressive students exemplified the three pillars of Learning, Leadership, and Legacy which Ridley seeks in all of its scholars. The culmination of the weekend was the annual Scholarship Banquet where Fourth Year Ridley scholars, Nena Evans and Ravynn Stringfield, were recognized for their immense contributions to both Ridley and the University.
Congratulations to the following students selected for Ridley scholarships:
Micah Harris, Ridley Reid
Christina Johnson, Holland-Blackburn
Sydney Williams, Ridley Flagship
