I would like to thank Mr. [James C.] Miller for mentioning Wakefield Country Day School in his letter to the editor last week. We are proud of the 12 students in our class of 2012 who earned almost $830,000 in merit scholarship offers and of our unbroken tradition of 100-percent four-year college acceptance. As I am new to Rappahannock County and am learning more about the rich educational, art, cultural offerings and scenic beauty, I know without a doubt that this county has much to offer, much to be proud of, and I look forward to learning more and being a part of this wonderful community. I invite Mr. Miller and others from the community to visit Wakefield Country Day School at any time. Come to a game or special event. We love sharing our school with others.
I would also like to thank reporter Matt Wingfield, a graduate of Wakefield, who introduced me to the community last week in one of his articles printed in the Rappahannock News.
