Graduating seniors at Windham High School recently received well-deserved recognition for their classroom accomplishments, but a group of other students cannot be overlooked for their focus on academics as well.

The school has announced its list of Collegiate Book Award recipients, a distinction that Windham High Assistant Principal Philip Rosetti said is presented each year to the top-achieving students in the junior class.

“Windham High School would like to recognize the following 2020 Junior book award winners,” Rosetti said. “Each college or university establishes rigorous criteria and seeks feedback from high school faculty and administration to identify the worthy recipient of each award.” said that every year a select number of universities and colleges in America partner with secondary schools such as Windham High to recognize exceptional high school juniors and underclass students.
According to Rosetti, each award pays tribute to a specific area of achievement and excellence, such as service to the community, music and the arts, academic distinction and advocacy.
The awards recognize distinguished students at Windham High, giving them a chance to gain a wider look at the world they live in and to connect outstanding students with schools of higher learning.
Each Collegiate Book Award recipient is presented with a book from the university or college and is intended to foster their willingness to grow and learn.
