Students Recognized for Hard Work at the Academic Awards Ceremony
By Natalie Cusinato
On Wednesday, October 21st, 2015 the Massey Academic Awards Ceremony rewarded students for their hard work and academic achievements. Each department nominated improved, hard-working or well-rounded students to win an award. The gym was packed with proud parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and friends who cheered on the winners.
Students chosen for the awards were acknowledged for their grades and for showing improvement, diligence, and the ability to balance school and other activities. After a short speech from various department heads, the awards for each course were given out to over one hundred students, each of them proud and smiling.
The Massey band greeted the crowd before the ceremony began, displaying their astonishing talents. After the Awards Ceremony, students joined teachers and family members to celebrate with cake and refreshments. A photo booth was prepared in the back for the nominees to take pictures with friends and family.
