Congratulations to Our Senior Award Winners!

Congratulations to these amazing students that earned or were nominated for the following awards:

1. Award of Excellence - This is the award given to one outstanding student selected from within each department.

2. Spirit of the Wolf Award - The individual that is representative of your department as a student in on-level courses and may be receiving modifications or accommodations that exemplifies strong character, work ethic, grit, school spirit, camaraderie with peers, etc. This is not an award for high grades although meeting academic standards are considered.

3. Co-Curricular Recognition - This is for outstanding accomplishments by our students in their activities beyond the classroom. Club/Organization sponsors will submit these nominations. These students must have contributed to the school in a unique way in order to be considered. Simply being a senior member of an organization, or an officer, or assisting in a program is not sufficient for this recognition.

4. Hall of Fame - This award is for seniors that have received first place state or national recognition for their participation in school competitions during their junior or senior years

(also includes students selected to TMEA All State Band/Choir/Orchestra). Club/Organization sponsors will submit these nominations.
