SUMMERTON --Clarendon Hall’s Class of 2019 Salutatorian Hannah Corbett and Valedictorian Kelly Venning have both been inducted into the SCISA (South Carolina Independent School Association) Veritas in Unitate Society.
This Society is a student award program developed to recognize the academic service-based achievement of senior students.
The essence of this award comes from the primary mission of SCISA, which places “service” at the pinnacle of the organization’s core values.

The name of the society comes from the association’s motto, “Veritas in Unitate”, Latin for “Truth in Unity.” This motto was developed in conjunction with the founding of the organization in 1965.
In order to be eligible for the society, students must be a senior with a GPA of 3.0 or higher, have three letters of recommendation and have a 50 hours of documented community service between June of the student’s junior year and October of the student’s senior year.
Headmaster Phillip Rizzo, Jr., who nominated Corbett and Venning for the recognition, stated, “This is a testament to Hannah and Kelly’s commitment to serving others. These young ladies were the top of their senior class and still found time to log more than 50 hours giving back to our community. At Clarendon Hall, we strive for academic excellence in a Christian environment, and our students are taught to serve as Christ served others.”
As Veritas in Unitate Society members Corbett and Venning were provided with a cord which was worn at their graduation exercises, a commemorative medallion and a recognition certificate.
