The Morgan County Middle School honored its highest achievers from fall semester at a breakfast in the school cafetorium last Thursday.
Students with an overall average of 94 or better in the fall term were invited to bring their families to dine on a breakfast spread of eggs and sausage, biscuits and muffins, fruit, coffee, and orange juice as the names of each sixth, seventh and eighth grader achieving the 94-average or better benchmark were called.
“We’re proud of all our students, and we’re happy to see all of you here today,” said Morgan County Middle School Principal Joe Hutcheson.
School counselors and administrators hosted the 8 a.m. event.
Specific awards are reserved for the more formal Honors Night event in the spring, but the school did recognize the student or students in each grade who had the highest grade-point-average.
In the sixth grade, the highest-GPA was shared by Paityn Overton and Matthew Reitman, who tied for the honor. In seventh grade, the student with the highest GPA was Elizabeth Mahoney. The eighth-grader with the highest GPA was Ruby Booker.
Congratulations to all of the hard workers and high achievers at Morgan County Middle School!
