Superintendent Cynthia Lane established the Honor Roll program in 2012 to bring recognition to students who achieve excellence and serve as an example to others. The number of students being recognized this year has increased by nearly 25 percent over last year.
Students will receive a framed certificate for their achievements, and an “I Inspire Excellence” wristband. Students also will be given the book, “Inspiring Excellence: A Collection of Writings from the 2013 Superintendent’s Honor Roll Students.” All students were invited (but not required) to submit a piece of writing for the book.
