“Major Gray gave a very powerful presentation to my Rotary club a few months ago,” said Michael Williams, Randolph-Macon Academy’s Director of Student Life.  “I’m excited that she agreed to come share her story with our students.”
 
Members of the community are also invited to attend this free event, which will be held in Boggs Chapel on the R-MA campus at 2:00 pm.
