Triple-digit grade point averages were easy to find Tuesday night as Frenship ISD honored the top 10 academic students from the Frenship High School sophomore, junior, and senior classes at the annual Academic Excellence Banquet held at the Casey Administration Building.
In front of the crowd of 175 attendees, Principal Kim Spicer individually recognized each of the 30 students and also announced the Valedictorian and Salutatorian for FHS Class of 2015.
This year’s Valedictorian is Emily Cluff and Salutatorian is Jessica McGill. Cluff plans to continue her education at Brigham Young University while McGill is set to head east to study at Clemson University.
Dr. Tim Perrin, President of Lubbock Christian University, served as keynote speaker and challenged the students to continue to be great in their endeavors. He quoted a scene from the movie Coach Carter, “Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightening about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.”
Special thanks to Jostens, Stripes, and School Messenger for their sponsorship support of this event.
Cluff, McGill, and the entire Class of 2015 will be honored during Frenship High School graduation on Friday, May 29 beginning at 7:00 p.m. at the United Supermarkets Arena.
