The Halifax County Convention & Visitors Bureau launches The Roanoke Valley Rocks’ 62nd fish! According to Amy Poole, “Halifax Academy is excited about their newly acquired rockfish and the opportunity to participate in Visit Halifax’s "The Roanoke Valley Rocks" campaign and tour. The student body was given the opportunity to name our rockfish and selected the name “Bert” in honor of our headmaster, Robert Hurley. A special thank you to senior, Harley Hall, and grandparent Martha Wommack, for sharing their artistic gifts.”
