Mrs. Cathy Stover Scholarship Awardees
When Mrs. Stover retired as principal two years ago, a scholarship fund was established in her name at BB&T. Mrs. Stover has always placed great importance on the recipients of the St. Joseph Award. At the end of the year award ceremony, Mrs. Stover drew out the name of a boy and a girl from those students in grades 1-7 who had received this award. Congratulations to Nathan Becker and Harper Wulfeck who will each receive a $500 scholarship to St. Joseph School!

If you would like to register to attend a Virtus session, please go to the website at www.virtus.org.
