NEISD honors summa cum laude graduates
Each year, hundreds of students across North East ISD graduate from high school with the distinction of Summa Cum Laude. This means that these students have graduated high school with a 100+ grade average -- amazingly many of these do so, while also participating in extracurricular activities, volunteer opportunities and part-time jobs.
Each high school honors these students with a special reception and ceremony for family and friends. The students, in turn, honor an influential teacher or role model who has made an impact on their lives. Both are recognized that evening by the school's principal, district executive staff, NEISD board members and Superintendent of Schools Dr. Brian G. Gottardy.
Future ceremonies include Lee on May 16.
