Congratulations to the WVMS students who were selected as Students of the Month for May and June, and this year’s Sojourner Truth Award winners.

Three WVMS students were recognized with annual Sojourner Truth Awards, presented by SUNY Orange. The Sojourner Truth Award honors the memory and legacy of Isabella Baumfree, known as Sojourner Truth, an American abolitionist and women’s rights activist who was born into slavery in New York and escaped to freedom in 1826. The program encourages college attendance as an option for students from groups traditionally under-represented in the collegiate population.

SUNY Orange bestows the awards to celebrate local students in grades six through 12 for their achievements and growth in various aspects of school life, academics, and the study in the arts. Students are nominated for the award by their teachers, guidance counselors, and other district staff. Congratulations…
