Two Gray Stone Day School students have been selected by The National College Board for the National Rural and Small Town Recognition Award.

Eligibility for the award includes achieving the minimum requested PSAT scores, earn a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or higher by the middle of their junior year, and attend a school in a rural area or small town.
A resident of Concord, Steenwyk is a member of the Gray Stone swim team, serves as a captain of the mock trial team and a member of the Quiz Bowl team, Spanish National Honor Society and National Honor Society.
Wilkins, a resident of New London, participates in soccer, basketball and track and is a member of both the Spanish National Honor Society and National Honor Society.
