Inside a conference room at J.R. Tucker High School recently, students Meredith Jaroneski, Kristin Schaefer, Lev Looney and Hunter Goff laughed and spoke over each other, displaying such easy camaraderie one would think they’d known each other for years.

“I will,” Meredith added quickly.
A few weeks before, all but Meredith knew each other, but only by sight and from the occasional class.

from Richmond to Hampton. > Read more.
