As I am sure is the case at many other high schools around the county, Ridley school district hosted another senior awards ceremony this week. What an amazing summary of achievements these kids have accomplished over the last four years. What I think was most touching is the incredible amount of scholarships that family members have established to carry on the spirit and character of their loved ones. In addition to this many organizations also continuously donate time and money to deserving students. Hopefully these acts of kindness will be paid back in the form of future success that we can all witness. A village may not be “necessary” to raise a child but it certainly does help. Good luck to the entire graduating class of 2012 and a big thank you to all that helped get them there!
