Class of '22 racks up the awards

Updated: May 17

Senior Awards Night is an opportunity for our school to recognize the upcoming graduates for their hard work these past 4 years. They use this night to present scholarships. Students with a high GPA were rewarded with honors cords to wear along with their cap and gowns. “It felt basically like a sigh of relief that all the hard work had finally paid off,” Landon May, 12, said. After the cords were passed out, the top ten of the class of 2022 were brought into the spotlight. “Being valedictorian is very rewarding. In fact, it makes me feel like all of the hard work I put into school has finally come to fruition. It also makes me feel extremely grateful for my family, coaches, teachers, and friends that support me unconditionally,” Ellie Harshany, 12, said.
