ELC presents student awards
The PA system may have been down, but the message came across loud and clear.
Estherville Lincoln Central appreciates the academic efforts of its students and recognized those efforts Wednesday.
ELC High School Principal Frank Christenson emceed the annual academic awards presentation, focusing attention on continued student academic improvement.
“Every teacher in this district wants students to succeed,” Christenson said. “Today we’re going to recognize those students who went the extra mile to achieve academic success last year.”
Students with a grade point average between 3-3.4 for two, consecutive semesters last year were presented a small bar while those with a grade point average of 3.5 and above received a large bar.
Christenson noted the list of recipients grows as each class approaches graduation. He urged current freshmen and sophomores to aspire for academic awards next year.
Christenson thanked families and friends for attending and noted the National Honor Society awards will be held in November.
With 400 students and 2,600 individual grades issues each year, Christenson said well over 1,000 were A or A-. He said there was no reason every student couldn’t be recognized next year.
