The Buzz is back!

After a hectic winter sports season (in which, by the way, our host Josiah Herring '20 won the MVP award for the varsity swim team), Josiah returns as the host of R-MA's podcast. This week, he spoke with two star athletes from R-MA Middle School: Kate Morgan '23 and Nnamdi Odom '23. Both played basketball this past winter, helping to lead their respective teams to championship titles. In addition, their athletic talents earned them positions on the varsity soccer teams as well!
