Mr. Johnson opened the ceremony remarking that the students being recognized are among some of the top leaders in the school. Many students are athletes, artists, fine art students including band and choir. Some students were in both sports and musical or community action organizations. They are active in the FFA, Student Council, 4H, church and other clubs both in and outside of school. Still, their commitment and dedication to their studies proves they have learned to maintain a high level of self-discipline.
This year 24 Freshman, 26 sophomores, 17 juniors, and 18 seniors were recognized. Seniors, who are invited for the third or fourth year, are also invited to honor an educator that made a positive impact on their academic experience. Sixteen of the 18 seniors have attended 3 or four years consecutively.
