Students from Gallman, Boundary, Newberry, and Reuben elementary schools and Newberry Academy were recognized May 15 at the Newberry Opera House as part of the City of Newberry’s eighth annual Academic All-Star Night.
Each student was recognized on stage with a certificate and were also presented with an ice cream treat from The Corner Scoop prior to the program.
Academic All-Stars were chosen by their elementary school for having been on the honor roll most or all of the academic year. Students in third, fourth and fifth grades were recognized by Mayor Foster Senn and City Councilman Lemont Glasgow.
“We want to salute you on your accomplishments this year,” Senn told students. “Your teacher said you learned enough in reading, writing, science, math and history to be one of the top students in your class and in your school. That’s quite an accomplishment.”
Glasgow encouraged the students to keep going and to dream big.
“Being on the honor roll means learning and working hard,” Glasgow said. “Those are great qualities to have that will take you into your adult life. If you keep doing it, and I know you will keep doing it, you’ll have great opportunities in the workforce.”
Senn reminded students to thank their parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and other for helping them along the way and their teachers and principals for being keys to their success.
