GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO/KJCT)-- Over 100 District 51 students were honored for their hard work in the classroom on Monday.
124 seniors were recognized for their outstanding grade point averages at the Superintendent Scholars Luncheon at Two Rivers Convention Center. The luncheon honors seniors who achieved a cumulative GPA of at least 4.0 in high school.
District 51 Superintendent Diana Sirko says the luncheon isn't just a way to recognize the student’s achievements, but also, teachers and parents.
“It's a nice opportunity to thank the students, because they are so receptive day in and day out, are such a pleasure to have in class. The parents who support the students, it’s a nice way to recognize them,” said Diana Sirko, superintendent, D51.
The keynote speaker at the event would likely love to have many of these students at his university, as it was Colorado Mesa University President Tim Foster speaking to the students at the event.
