3 Page 3 The Walton-Verona Mirror Mark Krummen Walton-Verona High School Principal High School Technical education awards and opportunities During the school year, Walton-Verona High School had 18 students in grades 11 and 12 attend the Boone County ATC. They enrolled in programs such as: Health Services, Auto Body, Diesel Technology, Metal Fabrication, Electrical Technology and Welding. The following students received some of the highest recognitions and rewards the KCTCS has to offer: Health Science Kelcia J. MNA Silver on WorkKeys Marissa T. MNA Silver on WorkKeys Dustin W. MNA Certified Phlebotomy Technician Exam Silver on WorkKeys Metal Fabrication Michael H. KOSSA Silver on WorkKeys Dylan R. Gold on WorkKeys Welding Brandon E. KOSSA DOT Welding Josh H.

Silver on WorkKeys Diesel Engines ASE Electrical Systems ASE Brakes ASE Steering & Suspension ASE The Office of Career and Technical Education, the newest office in the Kentucky Department of Education, is responsible for administration of the Kentucky Tech school district. It is the first technical education system in the nation to become SACS-CASI accredited because of its continuous improvement process. The Boone County Area Technical Center is 1 of 53 area technology centers (ATCs) that is strategically located in small to medium-sized communities throughout the state. Kentucky originally established ATCs to serve multiple school districts to provide program access because of cost and demographics. Currently, the 53 ATCs in Kentucky serve 129 school districts. The Boone County ATC serves the districts of: Walton-Verona, Boone, Williamstown, Erlanger-Elsmere, and the Diocese of Covington. The faculty and staff at the Boone County ATC work to actively engage all students in the mastery of academic and technical skills. Their primary purpose is to enhance and expand options students need to be ready for college and/or a career. The Boone County ATC offers industry certified programs, industry certification exams, student organizations, Kentucky Skills Occupational Standards Assessments, and certified teachers for all of their programs. All curriculums undergo a program assessment as part of the school s continuous improvement process. The curriculum is aligned with the Kentucky Community and Technical College System (KCTCS). System to system dual credit and articulation agreements allow secondary students an opportunity to begin their college career with college credit earned in high school. As the only state operated techni- cal education school district in the Commonwealth, Kentucky Tech provides statewide consistency and continuity of career and technical education programs. Students receive instruction in sound academic principles, theory, laboratory and clinical experiences to ensure that they can successfully compete in today s changing workplace. Career and Technical Education at Walton-Verona High School The mission of any Career and Technical Education is to provide students with the skills necessary for a successful transition to postsecondary education and/or work. They do this by engaging students desires for life-long learning in a global society. Career and Technical Education is an essential component of the Walton- Verona High School curriculum. For many students, it represents as much as a third of their high school experience. It is a critical factor in meeting the needs of students in academic achievement, career exploration, career preparation, and leadership development. Successful transition to postsecondary education, the workforce, or the military is one of the primary goals of Walton-Verona High School. Like the Boone County ATC, Walton-Verona High School offers certified programs, industry certification exams, student organizations, Kentucky Skills Occupational Standards Assessments, and certified teachers for all programs, such as Agriculture, Business, and Family Consumer Sciences. Opportunities for dual credit and/or articulation agreements are also available to students in each of these programs. During the school year, over a hundred students were actively involved in the Career and Technical Education programs offered by Walton-Verona High School. These students have received regional, state, and national awards and recognition for their successes. Many students will be competing in program competitions during the month of June in Nashville, Tennessee, St. Louis, Missouri, or Los Angeles, California. We wish them the best of luck and we are proud they are representing Walton- Verona High School. A Tradition of Excellence Student Achievement Generated Through Academics, Extra- Curricular, & Community Involvement Pictured below: WVHS students at the Boone County Area Technical Center Awards Night. In addition to multiple students receiving recognition and scholarships, one particular piece crafted by three WVHS students sold at auction for $2,500 to benefit the Northern Kentucky Children s Advocacy Center.

The primary goal of this system is to control dangerous and destructive pests with the judicious use of pesticides. Therefore, please be advised of the following: The anticipated date of pesticide application: Pesticide application will be applied throughout our buildings, only when needed, during scheduled breaks when students and staff are not in the building (i.e. summer break, fall break, Thanksgiving holiday, winter break, spring break, after school or on weekends). The routine service shall include pest management for ants, roaches, termites and other insects. All persons that apply pesticides for our schools shall be certified under Category 7(a), General Pest and Wood-destroying Organisms, and Category 7(b), Integrated Pest Management, to apply Pesticides. Should you have the need for more information or wish to be placed on a registry for advanced notification of pesticide application, please contact Dr. Bob Storer at (859) Directory Information From time-to-time, school-related groups and organizations ask for the addresses of students or graduates. Examples of these groups include the PTSA, Music Parents Association (WVMPA), WAVE Foundation, Alumni Association, class reunion groups, Military recruiters, and so on. If you object to having this information released, please contact the appropriate school or district office. Walton-Verona High School has declared its campus to be tobaccofree. No smoking or other use of tobacco is permitted on our school grounds at anytime. In the interest of the health and safety of our students, we ask you to serve as a role-model and help us maintain a tobacco-free environment. Thank you for your assistance. KRS

It will not be long until we begin another school year! Middle School Start and End Times This is a reminder that Walton- Verona Middle School has a slightly different start time than the high school. School begins at 7:55 a.m. each morning and ends at 2:35 p.m. Please remember that students are considered tardy if they are not at school by 7:55 in the morning. Another reminder is that if your child is absent from school, please call our school to inform us of your child s absence. Changes Academically Fifth and sixth grades will have grading percentages of 70/30 during the school year. 70 percent will be content based and the 30 percent will be work ethic/ participation based. The seventh and eighth grades will have an 80/20 percentage based grading, with 80 percent content and 20 percent work ethic/participation. Fifth through seventh grade Encores will be 50/50 percent. The high school Encores for eighth grade students will have their grading percent- ages included in the syllabus for each class. Our high school credit courses of Geometry and Algebra will be 70/30, 70 percent content and 30 percent work ethic/participation. We will continue the use of the Springboard curriculum in our sixth through eighth grade reading classes. The sixth through eighth grade regular math classes will use Carnegie learning materials beginning this year. Carnegie learning is a curriculum which is inquiry-based learning, with students having a workbook. The change was necessitated because our staff wanted more practice with skills and concepts for grades 6, 7, and 8. Also, the state will begin the change in the science standards in the upcoming school year. Our science teachers will begin to look at and begin the changes in their curriculum based on these new standards. The KPREP testing format which is based on the new common core for science will not begin until the school year. Some noteworthy events during our last nine weeks of our school year: The seventh grade math classes and the seventh and eighth grade Middle School combined Algebra class completed the Mathathon for St. Jude s Research Hospital and they collected $1,081. The classes are under the direction of Lindsey Stephens. Congratulations to Stephanie T. and Cristina T. for getting their research article/editorial published on TweenTribune!

Where have the last four years gone? I started off at school knowing no one and decided it was time to get involved and put all of my fears aside and join the PTA. By joining the PTA in Kindergarten, I quickly learned it was actually fun and I could make a difference here. So, I went from Treasurer for two years to President the last two years. I have had so much fun after the many hours of volunteering and pulling off some amazing events with a great Board and a great group of volunteers! The saying TEAM (Together Everyone Achieves More) couldn t be more appropriate - everyone pulling together from all walks of life and working hard for our teachers and students. I would like to welcome the new faces on the PTA Board for the upcoming school year. President Janet Fuchs; Vice Presidents Julie Naas, Heather Stewart, Amy Turner; Secretary Melissa Dinser and Treasurer Andrea Walton. I am confident that these dedicated moms and hard working women will continue to lead the PTA with enthusiasm and devotion to our kids. Please join me in welcoming them, and I encourage everyone to get involved throughout the school year. If you have questions, please contact Ms. Janet Fuchs at

8 Page 8 The Walton-Verona Mirror Elementary School Principal s Pause Rob Hartman Walton-Verona Elementary School Principal Ch-ch-ch-ch-Changes. This is a chorus to a famous song by David Bowie. What a great title for the story that unfolds in a school year from the early days of August to the final days of May. We observe changes in student ability, emotions, physical growth and maturity. All of these things transform right along with the seasons, and we get to see them right in front of our very eyes. And just like the seasons, that cycle continues in its own unique way year after year. It is amazing, for example, to look into the scared little eyes of a new Kindergartener on that first day of school. As they cautiously maneuver through the school, learning rules, social skills, academic concepts etc., they quickly become acclimated. By the end of the first month of school, it is quite evident many changes have taken place with our students. That once-scared Kindergartner is now comfortable and the school thing is an old hat. Another fantastic change the adults around here get to witness is the non-reader becoming a reader. It is simply magical to watch this evolution take place. Little by little, the child puts those sounds together and they begin makes sense as a group of sounds. This does not take place by accident. It begins at birth with the reading of books and hearing spoken language and must be continued with lots and lots of practice. Not only do we have the changes that take place within a school year but the greatest transformation is when you see the kids leave the elementary school as fourth graders. It is both a proud moment but also a bit heart wrenching to send off that group you ve watched grow up. Now all tall, smart mini-adults, we get to see them flourish at the next level with the confidence we all did our parts here at WVES to make them successful. Now for those of you who don t know the song mentioned earlier, Bowie was singing about the conflicted youth growing up and becoming part of normal society, which is way more artistic and abstract than what I ve laid out in this narrative. However, like the song, it does give you pause to think. Children really do blossom in incredible ways. I began this article mentioning changes being comparative to the seasons. Included with it are some pictures of the elementary school campus I ve taken throughout the year which illustrate the environmental changes we take for granted each day. I thought they were nice pictures and I hope you enjoy them too. Have a great summer and we will see you August 8. Walton-Verona food pantry Jessica Iles WVES Counselor Did you know that Walton-Verona Schools is fortunate enough to have a food pantry called Food For Thought that is housed at the elementary school?

Whether you donated soup dinner items, attended the soup dinner, bought a bowl or volunteered your time, you were a huge help! My heart is overwhelmed by the support of so many teachers, students and families who helped make this event and project possible. Between the soup dinner and silent bowl auction, we made $1, on the night of the event, which feeds 860 people at The Henry Hosea House. Total, we have now reached over $ which will feed 1,000 people! There were over 200 in attendance throughout the evening. It was an amazing night and totally exceeded FEATURES WVMS has SOUPer heroes Different Roles Autumn S. WVMS eighth grade student Have you ever been involved in bullying? Were you the victim, bully, or a bystander? Bullying has become a major problem throughout the world, for everyone. "There are times when my back is turned and bullying occurs less than 10 feet away," admits David Roou, the principal of Black River Falls Middle School in Wisconsin. (Foy) Even the principal doesn t see it all. It may not seem like it, but everyone has a role in bullying. Firstly, the victim of bullying can be greatly affected. Sawyer Rosenstein, a character from the TV show Glee, was a victim of bullying off-screen. One Tuesday, a boy he d been trying to avoid sucker punched him. Two days later he was in the hospital, where doctors delivered devastating news: The punch may have caused a rare spinal blood clot, paralyzing him from the waist down. (Rayford). Bullying can affect someone forever, physically all of my expectations. We also had some press coverage on the event. We have articles in The Boone County Recorder and Cincinnati.com, and Channel 19 Above: WVMS students created a variety of bowls to auction off in support of the Henry Hosea House. News came and aired our story on the 10:00 news that night. I had so much support and help on A student piece from Mrs. Cody s eighth grade writing course and mentally. The victim is often scarred from the bullying. This can result in anxiety, insomnia, and in extreme cases, death. Now what s the role of the bully? Someone can become a bully by attacking someone else physically or verbally. Girls bully other girls more commonly with words, while boys are usually more physical. People can become bullies for many different reasons. "Some people have a lot of trouble at home, and when they go to school... they let it all out there. And some people are just insecure or jealous. (Modigliani). Bullies don t often get off easy either. They can face law problems. In the state of Kentucky, bullying is considered a Class B misdemeanor for harassment, and can result in 90 days in jail or a $250 dollar fine. A record like that would follow someone into adulthood. Also, bystanders can have an the night of the event and it would not have been able to happen without these people listed below. I m touched by their generosity of time, talent and support! A HUGE & SPECIAL thanks to: Kim Lake, Troy Ridener & Emma, Lisa Prince, Laurie Angel, Becky Acuff & Colton, Jane Stout & husband, Brittany Robinson, Nancy Ryan, Brenda Tinch, Karen Yates, Tina Mazuk & Family, Lisa Volz & Family, Kelly Lightner & Family, Amy Hincks & Family, The Wagner Family, Tonya & Elizabeth Sandlin, Meryn Toole, Kenton Krummen, Charles Dietz, Chris Schadler, Jimmy Biltz and Rodney Cheeseman. I can t wait to do this event again next year with improvements in the silent auction organization and soup dinner line. THANK YOU AGAIN! You are all my SOUPer Heros! important role in bullying. Bystanders are the people who don t step in when bullying is taking place. This can either be because they fear becoming a victim themselves, or they just don t know how to intervene. "Most kids are not bullies. They are bystanders," says Beth Yohe, an anti-bullying expert for the Anti-Defamation League. "They don't like what's going on, but they don't know what to do." (Current Health Kids) Intervening can be very important, but a lot of people don t do it. A lot of times, when the bully is singled out, they will be embarrassed that they were the center of attention for doing something wrong. It can even stop the bullying entirely. Bullying is a major problem, and can affect everyone greatly, not just the victim. Every person has a role in bullying, whether it s bully, victim, or bystander. Which one are you?

10 Page 10 The Walton-Verona Mirror Bus Schedule The following information is important to your child s daily transportation. Please be sure to review this with your child. Welcome back to school! Please check the schedule below for your student s bus times. There have been some bus number, route and time changes that may affect your student. The time listed is the time that the bus will be first turning onto your road. This time is subject to change after the beginning of the year, due to changes in student population. There is always some variation, so the best policy is to have your children at the stop early so they won t miss the bus. The bus driver is not required to wait for your child if he/she is not at the curb when the bus arrives. Please remember that State law forbids food and drink for being consumed on the school bus. Students may not carry on any item they cannot hold in their lap, including band instruments and school projects. Cell phones, games and electronic devices may only be used with permission from the driver. As always, we strive to provide your child with the safest transportation possible, but it needs to be a team effort of school, student and parent/guardian to make the ride enjoyable. If you have any questions or concerns, I can be reached at the Bus Garage: (859) or by at Thank you, Teresa Evans Transportation Department Walton-Verona Independent Schools

13 Page 13 The Walton-Verona Mirror Footprints... on the Web? A student piece from Mrs. Cody s eighth grade writing course Stephanie K. WVMS eighth grade student Extra Curriculars Have you ever heard of a digital footprint? Do you know what one is? Do you have one? If you do have one, why does it matter? In modern times, many people have a digital footprint. Many people are greatly affected by them in their daily lives. This article will tell you what a digital footprint is, how it affects you, and what you can do to fix it. So, what is a digital footprint? Does everyone have one? As technology expert Will Richardson (2008) explains: One of my worst fears as [my children] grow older is that they won't be Googled well. that when a certain someone enters "Tess Richardson" into the search line of the browser, what comes up will be less than impressive. That a quick surf through the top five hits will fail to astound with examples of her creativity, collaborative skills, and change-the-world work. Or, even worse, that no links about her will come up at all. Digital footprints -- which Richardson defines as "online portfolios of who we are, what we do, and by association, what we know" -- are an inevitable by-product of life in a connected world (Ferriter). So if you ever get online or Social Media, you have a digital footprint. Every time you get on a website, click on a link, post a picture, update a status, or like anyone else s status or picture, it is tracked. People can go online to any search engine, such as Google, or any Social Media site and search you. They can see every picture that you have posted, every status that you have updated, every tweet, and even other people s statuses and pictures that you have liked. Everything that you think is private isn t. But why should you care? Does it really matter that someone can look up all of this stuff? Actually, this can affect your life in major ways. It can cause you to not get a job, or even not to get into the college that you want. Greg Coyle, cofounder of mywebcareer.com, said more employers are checking digital profiles every day to vet job candidates. He added that a recent survey found 70 percent of employers surveyed said they had rejected job candidates based on data uncovered online (Erdley). Of the 500 best universities, 20 percent reported Googling an applicant, and 24 percent said they searched someone using social media. Last year, the study showed 6 percent of admissions officers checked prospective students' Facebook pages, and 12 percent said what they found online negatively affected a student's admissions chances (Garrett). Many schools and employers search possible candidates to see what they find. A 2009 survey by Cross- Tab Marketing Services found that 70% of 275 U.S. recruiters said they have rejected candidates based on information they found online (USA Today, 12/20/2012). If they find anything such as profanity, ranting, inappropriate or revealing pictures, no matter how qualified you may be, they may just throw your resume away. If they see anything that they don t want their school/company name associated with, they won t even give you a second look. Just think about that. You could have a 4.0 GPA, and have an extremely impressive resume showing all of the community work you have done, but if your digital footprint isn t where it needs to be, you may never get into a college. All because of what you do online. So how can you prevent this? Is there anything that you can do? Well, for starters, be careful what you post. These days, a picture of a game of beer pong, a racy image or a negative tweet about a certain school can cut you out of the running to enter some top schools, according to a nationwide study that surveyed admission officers at the country's best 500 colleges and universities ranked by the financial magazine Barron's (Garrett). Never post anything that may be in the least bit revealing, and never bash anyone or anything. Don t be rude to anyone, whether you feel you have the right to or not. Don t post anything with profanity in it, even if it may be a joke. What you think may just be kidding around with your friends as a teenager, could prevent you from getting a job and making money as an adult. Never post anything negative about another school. If your school basketball team is playing your district rivals, don t post anything that that could potentially become offensive to the other team. Cheer for your team; don t cheer against the other team. Always be careful what you post, because you may not get into the college that you have wanted to go to since you were little. You may never get your dream job. All because of what you posted online as a kid. Is it worth it? So hopefully, you know what a digital footprint is and how it can affect you. You also should know what not to do online. Now that you know all of this, ask yourself, is your digital footprint clean? Or do you need some cleaning up to do? Silver skaters WVMS student John W. spent his spring break in Charlotte, North Carolina. His ice hockey team, U14 Norse, represented Kentucky and won the silver medal at the National Tournament. John helped his team with the game winning goal in the quarter finals and his awesome defense throughout the tournament. Congratulations to John and the Norse! Background Checks Beginning with the school year, Walton-Verona School volunteers must have a yearly criminal history background check according to the policy update. They will expire on June 30 of each year. The background check shall be submitted no later than two weeks prior to the volunteer service/ event to provide ample time for processing. This refers to those going on field trips and/or participating with students in programs and events as a volunteer. Volunteers must submit an authorization form (Youth Leader Request) for the background check to the Elementary School, Middle School, High School, or Board of Education. Authorization forms are available at each of these locations and on all the Walton-Verona websites under Publications Forms Youth Leader Request.

Nurse s notes Becky Acuff WVHS/WVMS School Nurse Attention parents of sixth grade students, the requirements for sixth grade entry are as follows: your child must have a physical from their physician or the local health department and a new immunization certificate from their physician as well. The immunization requirements for the sixth grade are as follows: 1. Any student who is entering sixth grade and is 11-years old or older needs one dose of Tdap. If a student cannot receive a pertussis containing vaccine, they may receive Td. 2. A single dose of Meningococcal vaccine is now required for sixth grade entry and 11-year olds as well. 3. If your child has not received a second dose of the Varicella vaccine, they are now required to get that also. Please remember that all students in grades 5-12 must have up-to-date health information, including an up-to-date immunization certificate. I have received notification from the Northern Kentucky Health Department that they have changed their policy regarding school physicals this year. If your child is covered by Medicaid, he or she must receive their physical from their primary care provider. If you are unsure who your child s primary care provider is, contact your local Medicaid office and they can inform you who is assigned to your child. If your child does not have Medicaid or private insurance, you may contact the Boone County Health Center at (859) to schedule an appointment for a school physical and shots. Enjoy your summer and we are looking forward to another successful school year in the fall! STUDENT ATTENDANCE REQUESTS Attention Parents: Should your child need to be absent for 5 days or more due to illness, surgery, hospital stay, or certain extenuating circumstances, please contact the school where he/she attends. HOMEBOUND INSTRUCTION is available for students that have a qualifying ailment verified in advance by a doctor. Homebound Instruction allows your child to keep up with his/her school work and he/she is not counted absent while in this program.

15 Page 15 The Walton-Verona Mirror Extra Curriculars Walton-Verona recognized for commitment to music program Ranks among nation's top schools Melissa Stewart The Community Recorder Reporter For senior saxophone player Megan S., there s nothing quite like playing in Walton- Verona High School s band. It s an amazing feeling when we all play our one part and come together as one big group and make music, she said. It s an energy rush, you think, Oh yeah, this is cool. At Walton-Verona nearly one-in-four students participates in a music class or ensemble. In addition to the band and choir programs, the school offers classes in guitar, piano, percussion, musical theater, music theory, and the history of rock n roll. The music program recently received a SupportMusic Merit Award from the NAMM Foundation, a nonprofit organization with the mission of advancing active participation in music, for its commitment to music education. The award is given to individual schools that demonstrate outstanding achievement in efforts to provide music access and education to all students. It s a humbling honor, band director Chris Miller said. Only 66 schools in the country received the award, and we re only one of only two in Kentucky. In a time when many music and school arts programs across the nation lack funding and are at risk for being cut, the award recognizes the support of Walton-Verona s administration and school board, said Erin Core-Stine, choir director. They are a strong supporting force behind our fine arts program, she said. The award is a part of the foundation s efforts to advocate for school-based music education. There is overwhelming research tying music education to higher overall student success in school and in life, foundation executive director Mary Luehrsen said. (This award) recognizes communities for their commitment to music education and strengthens support for these programs. According to Miller, music is just part of the culture of the school. Our students come first, he said. We try to do everything to keep things studentcentered. We want them to be successful and learn. In addition to academic success, the music program provides opportunities for creativity and community involvement. The music program is important here because it gives students a positive creative outlet, Core-Stine said. It s also an important way for our school to be involved in the community. Students in the band and choir perform at various community events including Christmas and Memorial Day festivities, and Old Fashion Day. Megan S. said the real benefit of the music program is working with the directors and fellow students. It s a big family, we all work together, she said. We spend so much time together and you learn to build other relationships besides just being classmates.

Pre-camp is July from 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. for all incoming eighth graders, percussion, and leadership. July is full band camp for all WVHS Band members. A newsletter will be mailed in early July with details on what to bring, etc. It has been a year full of firsts and great accomplishments by individuals and our group as a whole. The bar is set! July we begin working to raise it even further. Congratulations to everyone on a great year!

16 Page 16 The Walton-Verona Mirror Traditions of excellence WVHS teachers inducted into Hall of Fame Megan Lewis WVHS Multimedia Publishing Adviser Walton-Verona High School s reputation for excellence is not limited to its students. This year, faculty members Janet McIntyre and Connie Greene were both inducted into their high schools athletic Hall of Fame. McIntyre graduated from Springboro High School in Springboro, Ohio and was inducted in February for her contributions to volleyball, basketball and softball. When she graduated, she was the third alltime leading scorer in women s basketball. In all of the sports she played, her teams were extremely competitive and excelled having winning records in all three. McIntyre then said, We were, likewise, conference champions in all three sports my last three years of high school. We would win by a lot in basketball; in fact, I remember winning one game My senior year we went Greene also experienced great athletic success and was inducted in January at Peebles High School in Peebles, Ohio. Greene played basketball, volleyball, softball, and ran track and cross country. In basketball, Greene was the pre-eminent women s player of the 1970 s and one of the best in school history as she set the single game record of 50 points and currently holds five of the top ten scoring games (The People s Defender). Greene ended her high school Tennis NCKC champions Cory Miller WVMS P.E. Teacher and Varsity Tennis Coach athletic career with 1,268 points, averaging 20.1 points per game and maintaining the highest two single season scoring averages. Greene was also a two-time All-SHL selection and in her last three years, her teams produced a 33-0 league record and a 1976 sectional title (The People s Defender). With all of the athletic success, McIntyre and Greene still worked to maintain academic achievement. Greene graduated as class valedictorian, and McIntyre definitely felt the importance of school. Weekly checks on athletes grades were monitored. My parents both are educators, [my] mother a principal, so academics were stressed. Though the games have changed somewhat, it does not lessen how impressive their accomplishments are. McIntyre said, Lots of changes in women s sports have been made from when I played in the 80 s. Volleyball, there was not a libero; softball, we changed over from soft pitch to fast pitch during my sophomore year. Lastly, during basketball there was not a three point line and we played with the bigger basketball. Congratulations to both Janet McIntyre and Connie Greene on the well-deserved recognition. Thank you for your continued example for the students at Walton-Verona. Congratulations to senior Kendall W. for capturing the NCKC Singles Tennis Championship last month for the Lady Bearcats and to seniors Craig W. and Thomas J. for finishing runner-up in the NCKC Boys Doubles Championship.
