I am still delighted and amazed by the talents and potential of the students who select Averett.On February 27 more than 55 of these top students visited our campus to compete for academic scholarships. They were bright, engaging and eager to equip themselves for the future. The promise and optimism of young people is one of the many things that make our work in education rewarding and one of the reasons I feel privileged to be a part of this community.

Thank you for all you do to continue to support Averett.
