It is customary in our society to always recognize the highest achievers; the Valedictorian student or the All Star athlete. Unfortunately, the vast majority of hard working, well behaved, industrious students get overlooked. This award is intended to offer recognition to those students that might not normally receive acknowledgment for their efforts.
The students nominated today set a fine example through their often unnoticed accomplishments. Perhaps they have improved their academic standing. Maybe they have demonstrated their love of learning or have shown exemplary attitude and behavior. Some will lead by example while others will be determined to learn, no matter the obstacles. It is with great pride that we have discovered their secret...they are among the best.
