Where Education is Personal

WHS Seniors Honored

The Westminster High School Class of 2015 received more than $1.7 million in scholarships and awards during the Senior Awards Ceremony last week in the school auditorium.

ATT STEM It was a night full of honors and emotions as students were recognized for their academic, athletic, artistic and civic accomplishments. The class quote summed it up well:

                                 ”Success is not a matter of chance; it’s a matter of choice.
                                                It is not a thing to be waited for

                                           IT IS A THING TO BE ACHIEVED.”

“I’m so proud of all of you,” said Principal Kiffany Kiewiet. "You are an amazing group of people and I am so honored to be associated with you."

Among the highlights, is the annual presentation of scholarships from the District 50 Education Foundation, which is supported by individuals, businesses and community groups. There was a new addition this year called the AT&T STEM Scholarship which awarded $10,000 to Adrien Burr.
