Celebration of Excellence

Excellent Celebration

A senior who is the first person in her family to graduate from high school, a teenage mother, and a student who understands the trials and tribulations of foster care were among 45 young people recognized at Helena Education’s Celebration of Excellence Monday night.

About half the students were honored at the event for the obstacles they’ve overcome to achieve their high school diplomas, while the other half were recognized for their academic abilities. But perhaps the people most celebrated were the teachers each student selected for being the most influential educator throughout their schooling.
