In recent weeks Prince Edward Middle School (PECMS) students have earned high achievements at school and district science fairs. At the school-level science fair, several middle school students earned purple ribbons in recognition of their projects’ perfect scores. These students include fifth-graders Ava Tibbs, Quin’Neasha Woodford and Brendan Vanderwilt; sixth-graders Avery Ivers, Gabe Leonard, Nina Davis, Jake Magin and Josh Ragland; and seventh-grader Elizabeth McElfresh.

After their success at the school level, many Prince Edward County Eagles moved on to the Appomattox District Science Fair Saturday, April 6, at Appomattox High School. At this fair students presented their work again for a larger audience. Winners of purple ribbons at this level include fifth-graders Austin Johnson and Stephanie Riccio, sixth-grader Riley Fulcher and seventh-grader Elizabeth McElfresh. Through their hard work and dedication to academics, these students represented Prince Edward County Public Schools well to neighboring schools.
