NWHS Honors Convocation
Honors Convocation will be held on Tuesday, May 11th. This ceremony celebrates the many accomplishments of our students. Students who have earned an Academic Letter, Presidential Award or are in the Top 15% will be recognized. Please note, these awards are all based on cumulative GPAs and Ranks earned by the end of the FIRST semester. Academic letters are earned by freshmen, sophomores and juniors by achieving a GPA of 93% or above, seniors must achieve a 92% or above. Presidential Awards are only given to seniors that have a GPA of 90% or above and an ACT score of 26 or above in Math or Reading. Freshman and sophomores will be recognized from 1:15-2 p.m. and will return to class after that. Juniors and seniors will be recognized from 2-3:15 p.m. and will be dismissed when ceremony ends. If seniors receive a scholarship from a college or other organization we encourage them to bring their letter to the counseling office (we will make a copy) or email it to us so we may also include it in our Honors Program. We ask that you get your lists to us by Wednesday, May 5th. We would also like to honor students that have signed with the MILITARY. Their military branch may not provide this information to us so we ask students to please let us know if this is in their future plans.
