Last week, 16 Hopkins High School students were recognized for their outstanding work during the first term of the school year. Each student was nominated by a staff member, who said a few words about them. They also received a certificate of achievement.
The students were awarded at an after-school ceremony in the high school mall Nov. 13. Doug Bullinger, principal at Hopkins High School, said it is great to be able to celebrate a small sliver of students doing great work.
“Keep doing what you do,” Bullinger told the students.
One student per department is nominated for the first term achievement awards. The individual nominated is someone who embodies one or more of the following qualities: academic excellence, perseverance and fortitude, excellent citizenship, and overall improvement.
First term awards were handed out to the following students:
Eduardo Angulo Ortiz
Zochitl Contreras (student of the month, Sept.)
