Lee High School celebrated the achievements of top students, as well as those who have inspired them at a wonderful Summa Cum Laude Ceremony on April 14. Students graduate with the highest honors as a Summa by completing their high school education with a 100+ grade point average.
These students reach these outstanding academic achievements while dedicating countless hours to volunteering, part-time jobs and extracurricular activities. Passion was on display, as students driven to success by North East ISD teachers and their families spent a few precious moments in the spotlight.
“I think your educational foundation has been set here at Lee High School and we wish you nothing but the best as you move forward to either to a college/university, potentially the armed services, or the workforce,” said Dr. Brian G. Gottardy, Superintendent of Schools, as he addressed the audience. “We encourage you to go out and do great things in the world. To the parents that are here tonight, a huge thank you to you for what you have done for these young people for a very long time. Without your dedication and your due diligence and your caring, these students would not be as nearly as successful.”
Families enjoyed listening to inspirational stories as they heard about how this person, this teacher, this counselor, this director, this administrator changed their students’ lives. These educators went above and beyond the call of duty to show these particular students how much they care about their success.
In addition to family and friends, the campus welcomed special guests Shannon Grona, Board President, Sandy Hughey, Board Secretary, Ron Clary, Associate Superintendent of Operations, and Jane Jensen, Executive Director of Campus Administration.
