Students Show Their School Spirit In Richmond

In January several lucky students went to Richmond to represent New River and to lobby for student issues to our area Delegates. According to Public Relations Specialist Joyce Taylor, there were eight students who participated this year.

Those who went with Dr. Jack Lewis and Dr. Mark Rowh on the first trip were:
Angelin Barker, of Pulaski who is studying nursing,                                                                                       Jason Clemons, of Montgomery County who is majoring in information technology,                               Jordan Kime, of Radford who is studying science and                                                                              Michael Sweeney, of Floyd County who is a political science major.

Also along for the trip was Delegate Anne B. Crockett-Stark.
