Manassas Park High School students will perform the popular play, "Anything Goes" Saturday night at 6:59 p.m. at the Thomas H. DeBolt Auditorium inside the Manassas Park Middle School.

Senior Jacob Williams is the first student in the history of Manassas Park High School to be accepted to the United States Military Academy at West Point.
Manassas Park senior Jacob Williams has been accepted to the prestigious United States Military Academy at West Point—the first student in the small high school's history to do so. Jacob, along with his family, were recognized on Monday night before the Manassas Park City School Board. He began talking about going to West Point as a sophomore, but his parents didn’t take him seriously back then, he said while smiling. Jacob began the application process as a senior, but thought his dream of attending the highly-touted military institution was finished after he didn’t get a congressional nomination; a requirement to be considered. But last month, he got a call from U.S. Congressman Frank Wolf’s office—a call that proved to be a turning …
