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.
