As the school year draws to an end, students that have excelled this year and for some that have excelled for four years, were honored Thursday at an awards ceremony at Lake Havasu High School.
LHHS Career Center Coordinator Cali George said, “Today is the Class of 2016 awards assembly handing out President’s Awards, the Principal’s Honor Roll Award for Academic Honor Roll, Senior Attendance awards and several other awards honoring outstanding students.”
On hand to present some of those outstanding students with awards was U.S. Marine Corps Staff Sgt. Chimonas.
“I am here to present a Scholastic Excellence Award, a Distinguished Athlete Award and a Semper Fidelis award for music,” Chimonas said.
“This is a great opportunity as these young men and women receiving these awards are not joining the military, for what I how. These awards are given to students that have gone beyond their expectations and have been nominated by their teachers and faculty,” he said.
