Williamsburg Christian Academy held its annual Middle School Awards Ceremony on Thursday, May 30th, 2019. The ceremony serves as an opportunity to recognize students with awards given for excellence in specific subjects, and the Principal’s Award, given to a student that represents Christ-like self-control and a balanced approach to student life, both academic and behavioral. These students are an example of what a school principal would describe as outstanding in their character and self-discipline. The ceremony also gives character awards to students who best exemplified traits set forth in each award. The event was kicked off by Upper School Principal Beth Fletcher and the prayer was led by new Head of School Johnny Graham. 8th grader Keith Cardenas read an opening scripture reading, followed by a performance by three of our middle school praise band singers: Delaney Gibbons, Lola Geoffroy, and Rayanne Hepburn, accompanied by Jake Duffy on percussion.
