Thomas Scholarship Recipients_MG_6432

Each year the leading scholar from each Middle and Upper School grade is awarded a William S. Thomas Scholarship Prize. This year’s Upper School recipients, pictured from left, are: Matthew Z. Mu ‘18, James Clayton Hebert ‘17, Luigi Nicholas Mangione ’16 (valedictorian), and William Carrington Dowling ‘19. Photo Credit: Steve McDaniel
