Top 10 Scholars recognized at Academic Signing

Congratulations to the Class of 2021 Top 10! These 10 students have achieved the highest weighted cumulative grade point average up to and including the third quarter of their senior year: Nicholas Clark, Lauren Cox, Madeline Daley, Isabella Dawson, Connor Huss, Bryan Maxey, Zach Miller, Anna Rahner, Alaina Sharp, and Kristen Van Huss. They were honored at an Academic Signing celebration on Friday, April 30.

Director of Curriculum, Mr. Dan Rosenbaum, said, “These students have all been given gifts of intellect, but have not relied solely on those gifts. They have coupled their talents with a passion for learning and an inner drive to be successful…These are the types of students who, by pushing themselves, force other students to do the same just to keep up. They challenge teachers to be on top of their game every day to find the best ways possible to open up student’s minds. In other words, they are the driving force behind the academic success of the school.”

As they move on to their collegiate careers, these Rockets will be challenging themselves in fields like philosophy, economics, media production, sociology, economics, engineering, psychology, physics, biology, and political science. “The future is bright for these young men and women,” Mr. Rosenbaum added, “and I feel good knowing that we will have these students becoming our future leaders.”
