Every Spring since 2013 the GHRoW scholars have been meeting up with members of the GHRoW board for pizza. Also, every year SVA vice-principal Mrs. Dodge has joined us. And on many occasions others from the SVA faculty and staff have gone along, too.

From 2013-2018 we’ve met in Harrisonburg but this year, on March 31st, the venue changed to Sal’s Italian Bistro in Edinburg. Fourteen of the nineteen GHRoW scholars, Mrs. Dodge and a few GHRoW board members met in the back room of Sal’s overlooking Stoney Creek.

Over pizza, salad and dessert the students shared the names of some of their favorite teachers, subjects and memories of SVA. Those from the board shared a little about themselves, too, and their interest in the success of the GHRoW scholars. The meal closed with prayer for SVA and SVA students plus a few group photos were taken before heading back to SVA.
