Principal's List Awards

Principal Kathie Acker remembers the class of 2014 fondly. They were new freshman and she was a new principal. Unveiling the Principal’s List plaque is always a proud moment.

At the recent Board of Education meeting, as members of the community voted in their annual school budget and BOE elections in the South Gymnasium, many of Walt Whitman’s smartest students were across the hall in the Performing Arts Center being acknowledged for having achieved a 3.5 year cumulative average of 95 or better. It’s the Principal’s List awards, where each student is brought up in front of classmates, family, and friends, a brief bio is read about his or her accomplishments and camera flashes abound. Sixty-nine seniors were awarded certificates for their accomplishments.  The honorees names are placed on a plaque that will be displayed on the walls of Whitman for years to come.

Congratulations to the following exceptional students:

Valedictorian – Thomas John Hustedt

Salutatorian – Taylor Christine Parrish
