The 2017 Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) All-Virginia Academic Team Awards Program luncheon was held April 19 in Richmond. In attendance was Charlotte County resident Cassandra Long, who studied general studies with a specialization in agribusiness at Southside Virginia Community College (SVCC), attaining a 4.0 GPA. “After graduating from Southside, she plans to transfer to Virginia Tech with the goal of becoming an agriculture educator,” according to a press release from SVCC. “Long has been showing livestock since she was four years old,” according to the release. We congratulate Long on her award from PTK and for her many accomplishments while at Randolph-Henry High School. We look forward to chronicling her successes for years to come. Pictured are, from left,  Dr. Lynn Tincher Ladner, speaker; Dr. Al Roberts, SVCC president; Long; Alivia Dunn, recipient; Thomas Crews, recipient; and Dr. Glen DuBois, chancellor of the Virginia Community College System.
