Approximately 476 students will receive the award this year.
Students Madrigal Von Muchow, Logan High School and Joe Grosskreutz, Central High

significant difference in their lives and will also address the audience.
Honored students, parents and guests are invited to attend the ceremony
that will be followed by an ice cream social.
Students are eligible to receive the award for their academic achievement
during their Freshman, Sophomore, and Junior years. Recipients are
awarded an academic letter (similar to a co-curricular letter) the first
year, a lamp of knowledge pin the second year, and a bar the third year.
Each qualifying student also receives an Academic Achievement Certificate.
All students are encouraged to aim for this recognition. Since qualifying
grade point averages are based on the previous year only, and not
determined by cumulative grade point averages, it is never too late to
strive for this significant recognition.
