On Monday, May 14, more than 300 graduates were recognized at this year’s senior awards. There were 215 in total that were honor grads.
In addition to honor graduates, awards in different categories were presented, including departmental awards, Teddy Awards from teachers, spirit awards, attendance awards, leadership awards, and the Principal’s Award and the Superintendent’s Award.
The two seniors who received the highest honors of Principal’s and Superintendent’s Awards were Summa grads Jennifer Jett and Harrison Wissel-Littmann.
Jett won five outstanding awards, Teddy Award, Principal’s Award, TR Spirit Award and TR Leadership Award for her outstanding work in the school and community, and was also awarded the Student Volunteer of the Year.
“I feel honored and humbled to be receiving such prestigious awards. I want to be remembered as the girl you saw everywhere because I was always volunteering and being helpful and kind,” Jett said.
This fall, Jett will be attending the University of Texas at Arlington to study Architecture. After graduating with a bachelor’s degree, she hopes to go on to Graduate school to earn her master’s and become a Disney Imagineer, something she has been working towards since she was only 10 years old.
The Superintendent’s Award, the highest recognition given to a graduate for their highest achievement, superior leadership, and quality community service was awarded to the class of 2018 senior class president Harrison Wissel-Littmann.
“I was surprised about receiving these awards because there are so many qualified candidates, not only in my class but also throughout the school,” Wissel-Littmann said.
As a certified private pilot, Harrison will be attending Texas A&M College Station this fall to major in aerospace engineering.
