Turning leftovers into a reward is what Dr. Hunter Brown did with the two remaining red roses after Riverdale Graduation last week. On Friday morning, Dr. Brown met Stacy Greer and Joni Riggs at the school office and presented the roses to them in recognition of all the work they do every day for the school. Way to go, Dr. Brown!
