B’s or Better awards given for academic excellence [UPDATED]Published 9:29am Friday, May 17, 2013 Updated 11:30am Friday, May 17, 2013
The Glende-Nilson Funeral Home (chapels in Ashby, Battle Lake, Evansville, Fergus Falls) recognized academic excellence of seventh grade students attending the Kennedy Secondary School on Wednesday. Students that achieved a 3.5 or better grade average the past 2 marking periods were treated to an honors breakfast in their school cafeteria.
Parents and teachers were also honored. Each student received a parchment certificate and maroon and gold pen stating that they were an “Academic Achiever.”
The Funeral home staff shared the thought that it takes a team effort of students, parents, and teachers to achieve great results; the large number of students receiving recognition is a testimony to that fact.
