GRADUATION: Seniors had a home at Community High School

Vanessa Santos, daughter of Armando and Clenentina Santos, glowed when she expressed her feelings about reaching the top of her class. As valedictorian for the Class of 2010 at Chesterfield Community High School, Santos told the 154 candidates on Saturday, June 12, that, “[Community] offered us, each of us, just what we needed.”

Elaborating on the community spirit and the service projects the students volunteered for in the community, she said, “We exemplify community spirit by helping others just as our teachers helped us.” Santos expressed her love of learning new things everyday and how each student succeeded, coming from different backgrounds but knowing they had a home at Community. Santos’ goal is to become a nurse and she will be attending John Tyler Community College in the fall.

Recipients of prior awards were recognized. Vanessa Santos was awarded the WRIC TV 8 Best of the Class award; Jeysel Garcia received the Comcast Achievement Award; and Isaiah Robertson was awarded the Times Dispatch Scholar Athlete award.

The James B. Friend Masonry Scholarship was presented by Carlson to Heath Crocker Lovering; the Chesterfield County Adult Continuing Education Workforce Education Scholarship Award was presented by Marianne Feeney to Megan Cierra Brown and Alyssa Nicole King; the Woman’s Club of Chester, Phyllis Bass Scholarship was presented by Barbara Micou to Isaiah Blair Robertson; the Kiwanis Club of Chester Scholarship was presented by Edward Thompson to Vanessa Santos; the Chester Rotary Club Scholarship went to Vanessa Santos, also.
