Twenty-five was the key number for Sulphur Springs High School honor students Tuesday morning.
For the 25th year, the SSISD administration and school board hosted an Honor Student Breakfast for the 25 students who will graduate next week in the top 10 percent of their class.
Each student, his or her parents, and a teacher who has made a difference in the student’s life were invited to the Hopkins County Regional Civic Center for the 7 a.m. breakfast, which SSISD Superintendent Patsy Bolton called one of the “special events” associated with graduation.
The students were addressed by Bolton, SSHS Principal John McCullough and school board President Don Sapaugh before they were presented their gold honor cords by the teacher of their choice.
Sapaugh praised this year’s senior class for setting a standard in athletics, academics and extracurricular success.
“You don’t realize right now how much impact you have had on the future students of Sulphur Springs,” he said.
After Sapaugh’s brief remarks, SSHS counselors Karey Brice, Carol Cowley and Jerry Tittle read a short summary of every student’s accomplishments, key character qualities, their future plans and what made their teacher special to them.
Along with valedictorian Jake Russell and salutatorian Brandon Harry, the remaining honor graduates (in alphabetical order) are Eddie Arciga, Kayla Askins, Haley Ball, Ben Barrows, Shelby Blezinger, Bailey Booher, Jentri Broumley, Alyssa Burney, Baleigh Butler, Danyelle Carter, Sarah Fox, Regan Gilmore, Victor Gonzalez, Bonnie Grafton, Garrett Gray, Morgan Lutz, Richard McCroskey, Johnny McSheffery, Kaci Mohon, Jake Moreland, Heath Robinson, Dylan Rutherford and Chris White.
The SSISD has scheduled commencement exercises for the SSHS senior class at 8 p.m. Saturday, May 23, in the Civic Center Arena.
