CHS Celebrates Academic Excellence With Senior Honors Banquet

Continuing a nearly twenty-year tradition, Colchester High School applauded its top honors students at a banquet in South Burlington on May 25.

Over thirty students, celebrated for earning magna and summa cum laude honors, were distinguished guests for the special evening at the Doubletree Hotel & Conference Center.  CHS assistant principal Tim Emery offered words of praise, and students celebrated with a sit-down dinner. Keynote speaker and math teacher Wayne Younghans, who was chosen by the students for the 2011 CHS Yearbook dedication, also offered high praise.

Each honored student was recognized for his or her accomplishments. All received honor cords to wear during the upcoming graduation ceremony, and each was also given a flower.

Additionally, many generous members of the community also sponsored students in honor of academic excellence.

Congratulations, honors scholars!
