AHS Honors Banquet

Jessica Selph, TALON

Aztec High School's annual Honors Banquet recognizes seniors with the highest GPA. The 2018 banquet, was held on Monday evening in the school's Multi-purpose room. This is an award that means a great deal to students and teachers alike. So much so that superintendent Kirk Carpenter asked each graduate to bring an "honored guest" to attend the banquet with them.

The special invitation would go to an individual that had influenced each student in one way or another during their tenure at Aztec High School.

Each student was given the opportunity to thank their mentor and explain why they were chosen as their guest. Touching speeches were handed out left and right, but there seemed to be one common factor among all the graduates- they each brought someone that simply believed in them.

Of course these graduates hold exemplary qualities like a strong work ethic and a sharp mind, yet it was interesting how these students came to life, how they were truly turned-on to learning once they had someone backing them.

There were many stories shared of mentors cheering their students on and pushing them to do their best, stories that make one extremely proud of the teaching staff at AHS, the individuals who have dedicated their lives to shaping the minds and hearts of young adults in our community.

These honor graduates and honored guests represent a passion for learning and the proof that engaged children can do anything they put their minds to.
