Each year, there is an awards night for students put on by National Honor Society (N.H.S.). These students have been nominated by various teachers because of their academic skills and accomplishments. This year’s awards night took place Wednesday, May 15, and there were many students and their families in attendance. To start off the night, N.H.S. President Andrew Wikarski introduced Principal Patrick Adams. He came out to announce the valedictorian, senior Natalie Terry-Martin, and salutatorian, senior Evan Mortier, of this year’s graduating class. Adams gave a speech about each of them and all of the various things that they have accomplished throughout their years in high school and what they plan on doing in the future.

The night went on to announce athletes of the year for male and female. Female athlete of the year is DeBraya Edwards, with  the male athlete of the year as Dylan Johnson. They were nominated by their coaches because of all the hard work they put in to their respective sports. The last thing to occur, before the main awards were announced, were the special scholarships. The winners for the scholarships were announced by people representing that scholarship. One of the scholarships that was given out was the Wolverine Bronze scholarship and Mortier was actually the recipient of it. The scholarship had to be applied for with the desire to major in some type of engineering in college.

Once all of the special awards were handed out, various members from N.H.S. came out to continue the award recognition. There were many recipients there who won a range of awards from departments such as English and math, to recognition for outstanding club membership.

“Awards night went great! I’m proud of N.H.S. for running it as smoothly as always and congratulations to anyone and everyone who received awards yesterday! You definitely earned them,” Wikarski said.
