Nicholas Waller Receives Turnaround Achievement Award

Nicholas Waller is a senior at Spring Valley High School who is graciously anticipating graduation day.  He has not only made improvements in his decision making and overall behavior, but has worked extremely hard to reach 12th grade status while at the beginning of the year being classified as just a 10th grader. He has been focused and diligent in all of his classes.  His teachers and school counselor have expressed how very proud they are of “Nick” as he is affectionately known around campus.  Mrs. Bee his science teacher says that, “Nick is a very respectful young man, who puts in an honest effort every day. I love having him in class, due to his lightheartedness and ability to not take himself too seriously.” Coach Moton states that, “He is a pleasure to teach.  I see him as a leader!” and Mr. Lea his economics teacher states that, “He is a respectful young man with a solid work ethic.  He added some other stories in but I’ll let him and Mr. Lea cherish those moments. Nicholas has aspirations of joining the military after high school.  With three years of experience in our JROTC program, he is sure to excel and serve his country well. We can’t think of a more deserving person to honor and represent Spring Valley High School.  He is proof that hard work pays off.

The boys tennis team defeated Westwood 6-0 last night to clench the region.  Winning at singles for Spring Valley were Blake McGuirt, Vikranth Reddy, Noah Guyton, John Anthony Hurley and Eddie Tremolada.  Winning at #2 doubles were Ben Wagner and Austin Bridgers.  The boys have two more out of region matches next week before season tournament play begins.

Softball
The softball team was victorious on senior night against Irmo by a score of 10-0 in 5 innings. Anna Davis started everything off with a solo homerun in the bottom of the first.  We brought 15 batters to the plate in that inning, scoring 10 runs.  It was a great team win, and we are very proud of our 5 seniors: Anna Davis, Savannah Dowell, Brittany Evans, Katlin Graham, and Whitney Jenkins.  The girls will round out their region play when they travel to Westwood on Friday, and close their regular season on Monday at River Bluff. Wish the girls good luck!

R2i2 Student Advisory Panel from Spring Valley

Seven Spring Valley students were selected to be part of the R2i2 Student Advisory Panel.  They are Alyssa Brunson, Abigail Harrison, Moji Awe, Chloe Walters, Andrew Shroyer, Graham Shroyer, and Gloria Kim.  The students were surprised when a limo arrived at Spring Valley to take them to their first meeting and luncheon on April 23rd.  They met with students from the other high schools to discuss what R2i2 means and what was in store for them as members of the Student Advisory Panel. These students are going to spread the word about how R2i2 can be beneficial to all students when it opens in August of 2016.
