Eight students are currently enrolled in the pilot “Service Learning” program at Rappahannock County High School. The program, approved by the school board in February, is designed to offer students an opportunity to contribute hours of community service for high school credit. The inaugural class includes (from left) Ashleigh Pullen, Courtney King, teacher Beth Gall, Diana Loya, Nathan Smith, Emily Allen, Nathan Strother and Ben Estes, as well as Back Park program coordinator Noel Laing. The students are volunteering at organizations around the county, including the elementary school, Avon Hall, the Sperryville Rescue Squad, Washington Volunteer Fire and Rescue, the Rappahannock Historical Society and the Food Pantry.
