To celebrate their academic achievements, Central students gathered in the historic gym after school and were awarded for their studious accomplishments.
“I’m grateful for the time and dedication our school puts into out academics. Our administrators help by awarding us with different academic awards, like the cum laude awards. They also recognize those who went above and beyond in their academic achievement which I appreciate,” said Blake Zertuche, sophomore and Summa Cum Laude award recipient regarding his appreciation for the awards assembly.
