Hundreds will gather March 16 at Hamilton High School to celebrate the academic accomplishments of 323 high school students. The 13th annual event begin at 6 p.m. in the school gymnasium.
The Academic Awards Banquet is coordinated by the National Honor Society to honor students who have a cumulative grade point average of 3.5 or above. Students receive academic letters, chevrons, pins or certificates depending on the number of semesters they have achieved a 3.5 grade point average.
The Hamilton Education Foundation supports the event by providing an Academic Recognition Grant award to the National Honor Society which coordinates the banquet and program. This year’s theme is “Don’t Stop Thinking About Tomorrow.” The guest speaker is Hamilton physics teacher Timothy Moeller. The Hamilton Jazz Ensemble, conducted by Hamilton Band Director Jon Waite, will perform during dinner and throughout the program. Linda Paton is the parent volunteer who has prepared the awards and arranged the decorations.
Hamilton High School is located at W220 N6151 Town Line Rd., Sussex.
