On Thursday, May 31, the High School honored a select group of Juniors at the prestigious “Junior Book Awards Assembly".
Many colleges and universities partner each spring with high schools to ceremonially present “College Book Awards” to outstanding Juniors. Recipients are recognized for academic achievement, success, political advocacy, service, leadership, as well as in specific subject areas.
These awards are given to recognize the next generation of leaders and to attract high caliber students who are likely to succeed in their respective colleges.
The books awarded are often written by alumni or faculty, as colleges look for well rounded students who can contribute, succeed, and make a difference on their college campus.
The following are the recipients of the Junior Book Awards:
