Three middle school students win ISSF Star Awards

Noelle Dubose ’28, Elizabeth Harper ’28 and Brayden Zawyer ’28 received "Star Awards" from the Independent Schools of South Florida (ISSF) during an April 17 luncheon and ceremony in Miami. Nominated by Ransom Everglades administrators and faculty, the students were recognized for setting an example for others to follow; their excellence in academics, community service, citizenship, fine arts or sports; and their effort, dedication and good character. Assistant Head of the Middle School Jess Merrick and Dean of the Eighth Grade Maria Elena Soto accompanied the students to the event.
