WHS Senior Awards Ceremony is a Record Breaker


The Westminster High School (WHS) class of 2019 earned a record-breaking $6.5 million in scholarships this year making for a memorable Senior Awards Ceremony on Thursday, May 16 in the Joanna Ramsey Theatre.

The class also had more “honor” graduates than at any time in its history.

There were so many students deserving of honors this year, that the ceremony was split into two parts with an intermission in-between.

The first part of the program focused on student awards by WHS departments and programs with the second half of the night honoring individual scholarship winners.
