On May 30th, the Class of 2018, celebrated the pending close of their senior year by joining together in a student-organized Baccauleureate service, followed later that evening at the District's Annual Awards program which recognizes outstanding student achievement. Over 80 awards were presented to seniors and underclassmen for successes related to academics, civic engagement, and athletics. Sponsored by private individuals in honor of loved ones, alumni groups, public and community service organizations, local businesses, and school-related organizations, the monetary value of the awards exceeded $62,000, with most garnered by members of the Class of 2018. Many thanks are extended to the generous sponsors of these awards as well as to the community representatives who participated in the evening's celebrations. Last, but not least, congratulations to our student honorees on their much-deserved recognition!
