At the all-night fundraiser, teams will take turns walking or running the school’s track. Participants will also celebrate survivors and remember loved ones who have died.

Hermitage student wins Congressional Art Competition

Hermitage High School student Melanie Scearce (pictured above) this month won the 2014 Congressional Art Competition, sponsored by U.S. Congressman Eric Cantor. Scearce’s piece, entitled “Caroline,” was rated the best among the 89 entries by a panel of professional judges and 7th Congressional District residents, who cast ballots online.

Scearce’s portrait will be displayed in the U.S. Capitol for one year, along with winning pieces by all high school students across the country. The online People’s Choice Award winner was Sophie Smith of Hermitage High School.

Advocates for change


Nidia Chajon knows what it’s like to arrive in the United States from a foreign country, uncertain about what lies ahead. When she came to the U.S. from Guatemala two decades ago, there was no one to advocate for her and help ease the transition to a new culture, new surroundings and a new language.

In short, she didn’t have a Nidia Chajon. Fortunately, the families of Holladay Elementary School do.

Today, Chajon is one of 21 family advocates working in Henrico County’s Title I elementary schools and preschool programs;. (Title I schools are those whose percentage of students on free or reduced lunch plans exceeds a certain threshold.)
