GWINN, Mich. (WLUC) - The Gwinn Area Community Schools recently announced the recipients of the District’s $1,500 Excellence in Education scholarships for the top 5 percent of the GHS graduating class of 2018. Congratulations to Isaac Redlon, Brenna Bruce and Paige Locknane.
Excellence in Education week is a cooperative program supported by a unique partnership between the school and business community. During EEW the Gwinn School District, in conjunction with local businesses, celebrate the success of approximately 60 high school students who have demonstrated academic excellence during the school year. These students (and selected teachers) participate in educational tours of community businesses and industries and are also honored at a special breakfast and luncheon hosted by EEW partners. In addition, the top five percent of the senior class receives a $1,500 scholarship, which is presented at a dessert reception sponsored by the Great Lakes Center for Youth Development.
The main purpose of EEW is to celebrate the success of students and teachers and to recognize the important role the school district plays in the Gwinn/Sawyer community. Excellence in Education Week also recognizes the efforts made by the business community to partner with the school district and encourages community support of that partnership.
This year’s Excellence in Education Week activities are scheduled for April 30 through May 4, 2018. Gwinn’s local day of excellence took place on Thursday, May 3, 2018.
