Austin W. and Cameron P. were selected as the recipients of a scholarship to attend the local chapter of National League of Junior Cotillion, which is owned by Mrs. Kacey Buchanan. The High School Cotillion Club is a licensed program of NLJC designed specifically for high school students.

The boys will attend four classes which will culminate with a formal spring ball.
John S. Battle High School is one of 24 schools in Virginia to receive Y-Street Grant
RICHMOND- The Virginia Foundation for Healthy Youth (VFHY) has awarded $48,000
in grants to 24 youth organizations across Virginia to start or support chapters of VFHY’s
award-wining Y Street teen volunteer group, which promotes healthy, tobacco-free
lifestyles for Virginia’s young people.
Y Street grants are awarded to local student organizations in Virginia for encouraging
teens to become a part of Y Street and to support its mission. By the end of December,
each mini-grant recipient will host a Y Street training event in their community, training at
least 25 teens and one adult coordinator to become a working Y Street chapter. In 2013
Y Street added 527 new teen members, who collectively completed nearly 1,000
projects and volunteered more than 3,000 hours. We are pleased to announce that John S. Battle High School is one of 24 schools to receive the grant.
