NOMINATOR’S NOTE: “A great deal of travel and moving have created in Joy an appreciation for differences and a flexibility in her personality that allows her to make friends with everyone she meets. Furthermore, Joy’s father moved to Atlanta over the summer just prior to her senior year. Wanting to graduate from Prep, Joy opted to board with our school psychologist rather than miss the opportunity to stay in Augusta to complete her last year in high school. … Joy simply adapted, as she has done all of her life.” – Laura Johnson, director of college counseling
