A 2016-2017 VFMS Golden Apple Grant was awarded to teacher Dawn Settle for a screening of the film Girl Rising. Girl Rising tells the stories of nine girls in the developing world and emphasizes the power of education to change lives. The screening, open to all students, was sponsored by the VFMS GirlUp Club, which hopes to raise awareness about the issue of gender inequality in developing countries and the importance of educating girls throughout the world. The screening was a big success, and all money raised was donated to GirlUp, the global organization sponsored by the United Nations.
