TR to honor largest group of Summas in school history

| February 6, 2017

By AJ Ballard |

Seventy-eight seniors are graduating this year with a GPA of 100 or higher, qualifying them for Summa Cum Laude. This is the biggest group of Summa graduates in Roosevelt history. By taking Pre-AP and AP classes and earning high grades, students were able to end up with averages over 100.

Summa alumni Otoniel Trejo honors Alan Gnospelius, who retired from teaching Physics last year. Summa candidates get to honor a teacher who has made a difference in their lives.

“[Being a Summa Cum Laude] is about overcoming procrastination,” said summa candidate Preston Norris, “The biggest thing is communication with your teachers.”

Being a Summa takes a lot of hard work and dedication, since each student has to keep high grades in all classes, even challenging AP and Pre-AP ones . The students’ efforts will be recognized at a reception April 6 and will also receive regalia to wear at graduation.
