MOUNT VERNON - Academic awards earned by 240 MVHS students were given Monday night at the annual Academic Booster Club Awards Celebration at the Knox County Memorial Theater. Students receive the first (academic letter), second (academic achievement emblem), third (academic excellence award) and fourth awards (outstanding academic achievement) based on points accumulated for academics throughout their high school career.
In addition, the Academic Booster Club Scholarship is awarded based on student aplications demonstrating intellectual curiosity and outstanding academic excellence. A committee from the Kenyon College Admissions office selects the scholarship recipients. This year three students were selected: Fiona Keller, Nicole Steady, and Jillian Vance.
