In addition to academic awards, scholarships will be awarded by the
Academic Boosters and seniors earning a 3.75 GPA or above will receive
special recognition by a teacher of their choosing. Several student
scholarships are partially funded through a partnership with the Bucyrus
Athletic department through Scholar-Athlete Nights during the football
and basketball seasons. The Academic Boosters would also like to
acknowledge and thank the Bay Area Gas Consortium for their contribution
to provide additional student scholarship opportunities.
"The Academic Boosters have been putting on this banquet for several
years," Academic Booster Club event chairperson Amy Plumley said. "It
has always been very well received and is a nice way to honor the
students for their hard work in the classroom."
The Academic Boosters are in need of volunteers for their
organization. Please contact Secondary School Principal, Dr. Mark Burke,
for ways to get involved.
