Scholars Banquet toasts high school academic leaders

They’ll be front and center stage at each of their graduation ceremonies in a few weeks, but next week, HISD will honor high school valedictorians and salutatorians altogether at the annual Scholars Banquet, to acknowledge the accomplishment of finishing in first and second place in their class academic rankings.

The event will be held April 30 at the Royal Sonesta Hotel in the Galleria area.

The student scholars and their families have been invited to attend, along with principals and others from campuses. Each student will be presented with a medallion to honor their academic achievement.

We’re noting and profiling each school’s valedictorian and salutatorian in daily postings to our HISD Facebook page.
