SRDS Athletic Director Danny Brown was on hand to witness the exciting accomplishments of these fine scholar-athletes. "I can't even express how proud I was as I sat there in awe of our kids, representing our school and community. It was such a great night and we have so much to be proud of! The girls gave acceptance speeches that brought chills to all as they spoke eloquently about how grateful they were for their experiences at SRDS and about the future ahead. There is nothing more rewarding than to see the level of maturity and success we are sending out into the world. It was one of my proudest moments as a member of the SRDS community!"
