(New) Eastview High School's AAA and ExCEL Award Winners for 2020-21

Established in 1988, the Academics, Arts, and Athletics Award (Triple “A” Award) is sponsored by the Minnesota State High School League. The award is to recognize and honor high school seniors who have excelled in the classroom, on the athletic field, and in the fine arts. To be eligible for the Academics, Arts, and Athletics Award at Eastview High School, a student must be a high school senior, have a strong academic background, have participated in League-sponsored athletics and fine arts activities, comply with the MSHSL’s Student Code of Conduct and be nominated by a staff member.


ExCEL – Excellence in Community, Education and Leadership – is a unique recognition program designed exclusively for Minnesota high school juniors who are active in school activities, who show leadership qualities, and who are model citizens.


This year, we had an extremely talented group of juniors and seniors nominated, which made the selection process of the Minnesota State High School League ExCEL and AAA Awards even more challenging. This is a great testament to the number of outstanding student leaders in each class. Huge thanks to all who nominated someone and to our selection committee made up of teachers, counselors, coaches and advisors for their work in making these selections. For the AAA Award they selected Miranda Kerndt and Gabe Mahlen and for the ExCEL Award they selected Hunter Dunne and Rhea Rajvansh. Those students will now represent us in the next level of each award’s competition at the region and state levels. Congrats to each of them as well as to all of our finalists!
