It is nice to be recognized and it makes me feel good about myself!”
Ashley Skinner, a senior from Williamsburg High School, was named as the Top Performer in the Allied Health Science II program. “I wanted to be the Top Performer last year because the prize for our class is a great medical dictionary.
