BOE Student Recognition Program


Prior to the start of their final meeting of the 2015-16 school year, the Board of Education hosted their biannual Student Recognition Awards ceremony.

The event, which honors students for their outstanding achievements, is a way for the board to recognize excellence and the successes of students throughout the district. During the ceremony, board members read a list of accolades and accomplishments that students achieved during the school year.
