Academic Success // Senior Angela Lamarche takes a photo with her family as she receives the news of her Birmingham Scholarship. Every school year, the top 10 students from the senior class are selected to receive this award. This year as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, rather than announcing the award at school, principal Mike Williams surprised students by visiting their homes and presenting the scholarship to them personally. “I didn’t know Mr. Williams was coming to my house,” Lamarche said. “It was a complete surprise. I really wanted to shake his hand or give a high five but because of [the coronavirus] we just awkwardly stood there. Luckily, it was also the one day I decided to actually get ready.

A valued surprise
