T. Reynolds Robinson Scholarship Recipient: Jack Dailey
Jack Dailey was named as the recipient of the 2011 T. Reynolds Robinson Scholarship. This scholarship has been awarded annually since 1989, the year Reynolds died tragically at the young age of 13. Reynolds was a student at Beaufort Academy during his short, but full-of-adventure life. The Reynolds family rewards this scholarship in celebration and remembrance of Reynolds. Recipients must possess many of the qualities that people loved about Reynolds, for example strong leadership and athletic ability and the respect and friendship of classmates, in addition to maintaining a cumulative grade point average of at least 2.0 during the seventh, eighth, and ninth grades. Awarded to a 10th grader, the scholarship offers $1,500 toward the student’s college education.

Annual Needs Assessment
Survey posted
This week, the Annual Needs Assessment survey for each school and for the district will be posted on the district website and on each school’s web-site. There are versions in both Spanish and English. Parents are encouraged to respond to the school and district survey as this information will help in the development of the School Renewal Plan update due later in the year.
