Pulaski County High School students were recently honored for their achievements in the classroom and contributions to the community.
The assembly involved the student body, faculty, parents and friends who had gathered for the annual “Investments in Learning” assembly.
A highlight of the event was the revealing of the “Most Valuable Cougar” for 2011-2012. Also of interest were recognition of academic excellence in the classroom and the drawing of names for winners of $100 awards in the “SOL Excitement Campaign”
Congratulations to all PCHS students for their hard work and progress toward graduation and even more as they continue the pursuit of their education.
No one can stress enough the need for education, either academic, professional or in the trades.
Jobs are difficult to find in these economic times, but those who pursue their goals will find education and training will greatly improve their chances in he job market.
Emma Reeves was named “Most Valuable Cougar.” Others nominated for the honor were Carter Brookman, Rachel Llaneras, Conrad Meek and Charlie Tucker.
There were no losers at last Thursday’s assembly. All students were winners and are winners.
The Class of 2015 was challenged by Principal Michael Myers to sign a “Commit to Graduate” banner to show the pledge to complete their high school education by graduating.
Congratulations also to Principal Myers for encouraging his students and keeping his word despite the sudden cold spell when he slept on the PCHS roof.
Thanks to industries and businesses that help support this effort to encourage excellence in the classroom and students’ hard work.
Way to go students, staff, principal and supporters. Keep up the good work.
