These students represent the best of Guilford’s future—they work after school jobs, they are active in politics, they volunteer at numerous organizations, they are in National Honor Society, play in orchestra and band, row crew, play baseball, softball, soccer, basketball & lacrosse, go on mission trips around the country, are honor students, are captains of their teams, lead Guilford’s Youth Advisory Group, are AP & International Baccalaureate scholars; participate in theater; tutor, and somehow sleep and go to school. The Guilford Foundation extends its deep congratulations to these remarkable scholars as they start the next chapter of their journey.
