I have the privilege at the end of each year to choose students to receive awards from local groups. These awards highlight those students who are leaders among their peers, dedicated to their academic success, and overall good citizens of our schools. Although I am unable to present these students with their awards at our annual assembly, I wanted to celebrate their accomplishments. Those chosen to receive awards were: DAR Award: Lauren Zucco and Andrew Foutch, Illinois Principal Association Award: Mary Ella Tucker and Nick Prescott, Howard Davis Citizenship Award: Alex Hefler and Madison Stephens.
