Champions Display Character and Compassion


Eighteen outstanding high school students were recognized by teachers and administrators at the spring Breakfast for Champions ceremony, held in the school library on April 14. At the event, awarded biannually each fall and spring, student champions were selected by each of the school’s departments, as were three additional champions chosen by principals and a teacher. All received plaques and words of praise from their sponsor. The school’s string ensemble provided an accompanying serenade.

“Breakfast for Champions provides our staff the chance to recognize students who demonstrate excellent daily conduct and character, display compassion, and work to achieve their personal best inside and outside the classroom,” said Jeanne Kozlowsky, the school’s associate principal of curriculum. “Congratulations to these student champions, we are all very proud of you.”
