He or she should be a student who sets an example for others to follow, whether in the home, school or community. The students should have excelled in one or more of these areas: academics, community service, citizenship, fine art, athletics, student activities, perseverance, effort, dedication, commitment to positive goals, improvement in performance, and attitude.

Join us for Hebrew Academy's High School production of Class Action on April 2nd! This play has won critical acclaim for its entertaining yet relevant and realistic portrayal of life at a High School. Although each scene stands on its own, there is a common thread - all of the vignettes deal with situations that take place outside the classroom, perhaps the most important experiences that young people deal with while attending High School.
