Congratulations to Karah Barry!
Congratulations to Karah Barry, a senior captain on the Spring Valley girls’ soccer team! Karah is the 2021 recipient of the Spring Valley Viking Cup Ashley Nicole Dent Memorial Scholarship ($1,000). The Ashley Nicole Dent Memorial Scholarship is in honor of Spring Valley varsity soccer player Ashley Dent who was lost in 2006. Ever since, Ashley’s memory has been honored by the girls’ soccer program in a variety of ways, including through two memorial scholarships – one presented through the Viking Cup soccer tournament and the other to a senior on the girls’ team.
This year, due to the tournament being canceled, applicants were required to submit an essay responding to a prompt related to Ashley’s outstanding character and how their own similar character traits were positively impactful in a variety of ways. Two dozen teams had applicants, and a committee of nine individuals (five coaches from different Viking Cup participating teams and four Spring Valley teachers and administrators) selected Karah as the runaway winner. She was, in fact, the first Spring Valley player to win this scholarship. Next year, Karah will attend North Greenville University on full scholarship for academics and athletics, where she will continue her soccer career while double-majoring in Psychology and Legal Studies (pre-law).
Congratulations to Spring Valley’s Karah Barry!

Yearbook Senior Tributes
Senior Tributes for 2021 Yearbook – As everybody knows, the Class of 2021 has not had the senior year they all imagined.

In these unpredictable times, make sure to remember and encapsulate this time in your senior’s life. Take this opportunity to recognize his or her accomplishments with a personal tribute in the 2021 edition of the Spring Valley yearbook, Saga. This yearbook is one of the few celebrations of the Class of 2021, let your student remember all the special people and happenings from high school. Personal tributes are available in a variety of sizes and prices.

On February 25th we begin our first session of a 5-part virtual series Money Now for College. As a parent, the reality of paying for college becomes more and more real each year. Currently, the College Board reports that a “moderate” college budget for an in-state public college averaged $24,061 per year. A moderate budget at a private college averaged $47,831 per year. Yikes! We hope you will join us for our 30-minute sessions from 6-6:30 p.m. Here’s the registration link please see the flyer above.
