Congratulations to Jonathan Trowbridge who attends the Chantilly Academy. He is ranked 10th in the nation for Computer Network Design while representing the state of Virginia in the Future Business Leaders of America (FLBA) competition in Anaheim, Calif. He will continue to enjoy California living for the next week, and then return home.

The WFRWC is pleased to announce Woody Angle as the recipient for the 2009 Barbara Bush Scholarship award. The scholarship was named after First Lady Barbara Bush, and was established by the WFRWC to recognize vibrant youth who are active and have made outstanding contributions to the Republican Party.

The applicant must meet the following criteria: have a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or above; be a 2007 graduating senior of Oakton, Chantilly, Centreville or Westfield High School and demonstrate leadership in one or more Republican activities.

Woody was nominated by Bob Carlson, FCRC Sully District Chairman. He maintains a 3.2 cumulative GPA at Westfield High School and graduated cum laude honor roll and has three letters for varsity sports. He has an additional extensive list of activities and Republican volunteer experience. His experience ranges from volunteering for the McCain/Palin 2008 Campaign; for the Tom Davis for Congress campaign and parade; and for the Wolf for Congress campaign. In between school and his republican volunteering, Woody kept busy with his leadership skills. He was captain of the varsity lacrosse team and coached youth lacrosse; he was a DECA competitor (state runner up and national qualifier); and he was a peer monitor. Woody proudly gave back to his community as well by volunteering at his church, "Our Neighbor's Child" and mentored elementary school children.

Woody was recognized at the May 21st WFRWC meeting where he was presented the Barbara Bush Scholarship certificate and a scholarship check in the amount of $500.

He will be attending either East Carolina University or the University of South Carolina — his choice as he was accepted to both.
