“I’m very proud of these two spectacular seniors! They represent everything that is good with high school students these days – they love learning, they lead within the school community, they give back to both The Academy and the greater community, and they live their lives with compassion and kindness for others. They will continue to represent WA very well as they launch into the next stage of their educational pursuits,” said Associate Head of School Holly Singleton.
