Ettrick Elementary held its Student of the Year Banquet Thursday, March 31. Community High School students catered the event. Chef Dana Byerson and his staff from Community High School served a delicious meal of baked chicken, macaroni and cheese, green beans, tossed salad and dinner rolls. The dinner was followed by tempting desserts such as peach cobbler, chocolate layer cake, chocolate chip cookies and white chocolate chip cookies! Virginia State University students served as greeters and refilled drinks as they shared with students their steps to furthering their education and to achieving their goals. The students of the year for 2011 are Eboni Murphy, a fifth-grade student and Miles Woody, a first-grade student. Miles was unable to be with us because he is in the hospital, but his father and his two brothers came to accept his award. Outstanding students of the year were second-graders Alexis Richardson, Kindergarten, Wyatt Carter, Amiyah Crawford for third grade, and David Williams for fourth grade.
