Macy Lee Montgomery, a senior at Rappahannock County High School, was awarded the 2018 Virginia School Board Association’s Exhibitors Scholarship.

Funded by exhibiting companies at the VSBA’s annual convention, the scholarship was made available to spring 2019 graduating seniors who have served as student school board representatives.

Macy has served as student representative to the Rappahannock County School Board since August 2018.

“It is an honor to be able to receive the VSBA Exhibitors Scholarship,” says Macy. “This scholarship will assist me in the next phase of my life. Monetarily, the scholarship funds will go toward college loans, ultimately leading me toward my career in medicine.

“Emotionally, the scholarship funds give me confidence that I will accomplish this goal.”

The scholarship was awarded this past week at the VSBA Annual Convention in Williamsburg, which brings together school board members, superintendents, division administrators, and education officials from across the commonwealth.
