Class of 2024 Scholarships & Awards Form

Class of 2024 Scholarships & Awards Form
Congratulations on approaching the end of your high school career! There are many upcoming events to celebrate your accomplishments, and Senior Honor Night is among them. Senior Honors Night is scheduled for Thursday, May 9th in the BHSN Auditorium at 7:00 - 8:00 p.m.

We'd like to recognize the awards, honors, and/or scholarships you've received on that evening by printing them in the Honor Night program.  To do so, though, we need information from you.   Some of these scholarships and awards will be presented during the awards program if they are community based scholarships or awards, others, however, will be recognized only in the printed program. 

This form provides you with the opportunity to list up to three awards, honors, or scholarships you've received. Answer each question by typing into the provided box. This information will be collected and printed in the Honor Night program. You may submit the form more than once if you have more than three awards to list.

Additionally, MCCSC and the Herald Times often request this information, and the details of the awards you report may be published in a special section of the local newspaper.

Submissions must be made by the end of school on Friday, May 3rd. 

Please see Mrs. Willis or you counselor if you have any questions.

Graduation Speech Tryouts

Any member of the Class of 2024 wishing to deliver a graduation speech during this year’s commencement will need to sign up for a time to present your speech in order to be considered. 

Tryouts will be on Wednesday, April 3rd, from 7:00 to 7:50 AM.  You will need to come by Mr. Aiken’s room (508) to sign up for a tryout time. 

Speeches must be less than three minutes in length and must be inclusive of all students’ experience at North, not about individual accomplishments. 

You must have five copies of your speech to present to the judges.
