Where Education is Personal

A Night of Honors for WHS Seniors


The Westminster High School Class of 2014 had plenty to celebrate during last week’s annual awards ceremony in the school auditorium. Students earned more than $1.6 million total in scholarships.

In addition to the monetary awards, students were recognized for outstanding work in categories ranging from academics and art to athletics and theater. You can see the entire list of winners below.

Principal Michael Lynch, who is leaving at the end of the year, congratulated the students for taking the time and making the effort to get the most out of their high school experience. “We used to call you students, now we have begun to treat you as adults,” he said.

There were some emotional moments as well, as teachers shared their thoughts about the students they had become very close with over the students’ high school careers. Art Teacher Michelle Music’s voice cracked as she introduced John Mora, the recipient of the Outstanding Senior Award in Two Dimensional Art. She told the audience that, “John has used art to mold himself into a strong, passionate, kind, wise, thoughtful and spiritual young man.”

You can watch the entire ceremony below.
