Senior Awards . . .

This evening was one of celebration as we honored Tahoma High School Seniors for their academic achievements and awarded scholarships.  I once again had the honor of introducing and honoring the Valedictorian and Salutatorian and those individuals receiving recognition for their achievements as National Merit Commended Scholars.  These are truly exceptional young people. They and all those honored this evening for academic achievements, character, and community service deserve our thanks and deep appreciation for their commitment to learning and our hopes for continued success as they transition to a new chapter in their lives.

Also, thank you to the many community organizations that awarded thousands of dollars in scholarships to thankful recipients and their proud parents.  Collectively, Tahoma seniors earned greater than $1.8 million in scholarships.

Oh, in case you are wondering, this is a BIG LAST for me as it is the door to the end of the school year and my last as a member of this exceptional team of educators that supported these young people's journey.
