TCCHS honors seniors

THOMASVILLE — Thomas County Central High School shone the spotlight on its graduating students Thursday, May 16, with Honors Night.

 Honors Night recognizes seniors’ outstanding achievement throughout their four years of high school.

 “The seniors have worked hard for these four years, and this is the moment right before their next step in life,” said TCCHS Vice-Principal  Trista Jones.

“It is a great opportunity to recognize students for their community service, for their high averages in their classes, to receive scholarships, and it is an honor for us to be able to showcase these students.”

Seniors were presented a variety of awards for both elective and academic classes. Stoles were presented to Honor Graduates and MERIT Scholars and gold tassels were awarded to students in the National Honor Society. Cords were awarded for a students participating in dual enrollment, those completing CTAE pathways with a credential, those committed to entering the Armed Forces, and those earning fine arts and foreign language honors. Students meeting community service milestones were awarded medals. In addition, several scholarships were presented to students by local organizations.

“It felt awesome to receive the awards that I did,” said Alex Hopland, who received a military cord, a pathway cord, a medal for highest average in Math IV, a medal for outstanding student in broadcasting, and a medal for 50 hours of community service.

“I believe the biggest surprise to me was getting the award for Broadcasting. There were so many hard working people in Broadcasting that could have also received that award, but I am very honored that I received it.”

Some students expressed happiness for their recognition, but also sadness that high school was ending.

“When I got my award, I was happy, but at the same time sad because I knew I was leaving,” said Rachel Lee Glover, who received cords for Chorus and Thespian Troupe.
