Our students keep popping into the spotlight – to the point that it’s hard to keep up! From elementary through high school, they are being recognized for a wide range of achievements. Students like kindergartener Lex Duling who wrote the winning entry for his age group in WVU’s Statler College of Engineering and Mineral Resources E-Week Essay Competition. Or Taryn Day, who represented her age group in the Regional Spelling Bee. When it comes to our students, we love to give them kudos. While this list is not an exhaustive one, please join us in congratulating these amazing TCS students.
