Congratulations to the nine DC high school students awarded Stephen Joel Trachtenberg Scholarships!! They will receive full rides to The George Washington University.  Seven of the students will be graduating from DC public and charter schools:  Adam Middleton and Chidi Agbaeruneke of Benjamin Banneker High School; Sarai Reed of Duke Ellington School of the Arts; Hope Ajayi of McKinley Technology Senior High School; Alena Russell of School Without Walls Senior High School; and Markus Batchelor and Moo Bae of Thurgood Marshall Public Charter High School.

Since your tuition, room, board, and books are taken care of - time for clothes shopping! We wish you all the greatest success! Congratulations!

?: who are you cheering for next Saturday?

A: the Anacostia Senior High School team on It’s Academic!

This morning the Anacostia Marching Band made an appearance on the show to liven up the audience a bit, but next week, March 12th, will be the return of Anacostia to the local high school quiz show.  The show was already taped on February 5th, but lets show some love with sofa support!

Other DC Public Schools to appear on the program this season include: Woodrow Wilson HS, Benjamin Banneker Academic HS, and the School Without Walls.
