Central Community High School will hold the Academic Achievement Awards program on Tuesday, May 6th at 7:00 P.M. in the Commons Area.  The event is designed to provide students with recognition for their accomplishments.  It also allows parents and members of the community to witness and share in the celebration of achievement.  A personal letter from the school will invite students (and their parents) who will receive special honors that evening.  However, everyone from the public is invited to attend and share in the celebration of these achievements. 


Special recognitions that will be presented at the event include academic scholarships, certificates for performance on standardized tests, attendance recognitions, and special academic awards.  Special guests from community organizations and surrounding institutions will be invited to present many of the honors.  We anticipate that students will receive many well-deserved accolades for their scholastic performance at Central Community High School.  If you would like to discuss any of the information above, please contact us at 526-4578.
