Students Earn Academic Awards
For over 20 years the Western Kansas Liberty League has hosted an academic contest in order to recognize its best and brightest students. Schools select four students from each grade to take tests in Math, Science, English, Reading, and Social Studies. Students compete against students from other league schools in the stated topics.
Medals are awarded by class for the top three places in the five subjects, and top students are also recognized for a composite score in the five academic areas. Certificates are awarded for places fourth through sixth in each area. There are also school scores for each grade level, and an overall school winner for all tests.
Students who placed in the top 10 were recognized at the home basketball game on Friday, January 31st.
Students who received awards are pictured from left: Rubie Yost (freshman), Tucker Burr (freshman), Grace Wright (sophomore), Alondra Perez (junior), Kaylynn Hendricks (senior), Lily Lawson (freshman), Sarah Mellinger (sophomore), and Tyler Sabatka (junior).
