MLHS Students of Excellence recognized


While chalkboards are probably a thing of the past for most classrooms, the chalk drawing  by Bob Upgren shared a unique message to the audience at the 27th annual Students of Excellence Banquet and Recognition Ceremony presented by Resource Training & Solutions Wednesday, April 30, at the River’s Edge Convention Center in St. Cloud.
Among the top 150 high school seniors at the event were Maple Lake High School Students of Excellence Ashley Becker, Drew Seibert, Justin Wilson and Maria Zaske.
Each honoree was nominated by their school or district and received a plaque recognizing their accomplishment and a certificate from Gov. Mark Dayton.
MLHS Principal Dave Hansen explained why the four local students joined more than 4,000 other seniors who have been recognized over the years.
“Our four honorees have demonstrated their commitment to academic achievement and excellence throughout their years in high school,” Hansen said. “They have taken challenging courses and demonstrated their love for learning and their commitment to a bright and successful future.”
He added that the district is “proud to honor these young men and women for all their hard work.”
