WL-S hosts academic excellence banquet


Submitted story

WEST LIBERTY – On Thursday, March 17, WL-S administrators recognized 85 high school students at the Academic Excellence Banquet. Students invited to the banquet are required to maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.75 or higher for the entire school year. For some students this commitment begins in 8th grade if they are selected to begin high school level Algebra and Biology classes. For others, this includes their college level courses and high school classes combined.

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 and 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 who made a positive impact on their academic experience. Sixteen of the 18 seniors have attended three or four years consecutively.
