Graduates earn scholarship honors despite challenging year

As we near the end of another school year, we are reminded that getting to graduation is a true testament of not only the student’s hard work, but that of the families, teachers and community members who helped them gain the knowledge and skills necessary to pursue a future of their choosing.

This educational teamwork, yet again, proved a success with select graduates from district high schools earning scholarships. Below represents only a few of the honors from the Class of 2021 – congratulations to each and every graduate for their accomplishments during their time at Five Star Schools.


Four Five Star students named 2021 Daniels Scholars
