Academic Awards Breakfast
Students recognized for academic Achievement
by Eric Leventhal, Editor-in-Chief

On Thursday, April 22, just over a third of West Geauga's students gathered in the cafeteria to honor outstanding student achievement at the annual Academic Awards Breakfast. All students with at least a 3.5 GPA for the year were invited.

"It's the single most important event that we host every year," said Principal Mr. Joseph Mueller.

Students were presented with awards for a variety of academic topics, including everything from science to art. For the first time in West Geauga history, varsity letters were awarded to juniors who had maintained at least a 3.5 GPA throughout their high school careers. Special pins were presented to students who had already earned varsity letters. "It made me feel as though all my accomplishments have been recognized," said Jessica Kovach, who received a letter. Principal Mueller explained, "We wanted to promote the idea that West Geauga is about academics first and foremost."
