OSWEGO - Oswego High School (OHS) families packed the OHS cafeteria to celebrate the top 25 students of each grade level for the 2018-2019 school year.
The 30th annual top 100 luncheon served as a time to honor the academic accomplishments of some of the finest freshmen, sophomores, juniors and seniors at the high school. Following a buffet-style lunch, presented by the Oswego City School District (OCSD) Food Service team, OHS Principal Patrick Wallace expressed his gratitude for and pride of each of the top 100 students. He said the hard work, dedication and commitment to their OCSD education got them the recognition they deserved. Each honoree, he said, has embodied the qualities to achieve success.
Also recognized were the several OHS teachers and support staff members who helped guide each student on their own educational pathway. OCSD Superintendent Dr. Dean Goewey echoed those sentiments and said the top 100 students represent the best OCSD has to offer. For anyone who may question the quality of teaching and learning within the school district, Dr. Goewey offered those folks to look back at the accomplishments of the top 100 students and beyond.
Board of Education member Brian Chetney also offered congratulatory remarks and commended the students for their time management and perseverance.
“We’re all very proud of you,” he said.
