    Congratulations to Jim Ray, '06. Jim is a software engineer at Google, currently working on the Chromecast team. Jim says, "I think the most valuable thing I received from my Orchard experience was a love for learning and desire for growth. Orchard's outstanding teaching staff did a fantastic job of inspiring me to be a lifelong learner - an indispensable skill regardless of your chosen career path. Without their guidance, I don't think I would be in the same place I am today."
