BRVGS is proud to note that two of our students have been recognized as "Rising Stars" in technology by the Virginia affiliate of the National Council For Women In Technology (NCWIT).  Mackenzie Fain of Fluvanna County and Miryam Reid of Greene County were notified of their awards this week, and have been invited to attend the NCWIT award presentations in Blacksburg in March. 

NCWIT describes its "Aspirations in Computing" program, through which these awards are issued, as "...provid(ing) technical girls and women with ongoing engagement, visibility, and encouragement for their computing-related interests and achievements from high school through college and into the workforce."  To learn more about NCWIT, please go to:

Congratulations to Mackenzie and Miryam for this outstanding accomplishment!
