Ava High School held the winter Renaissance awards program Monday morning in the Performing Arts Center. This program recognized achievements of students for the first semester of the 2010-11 school year.
The Renaissance program recognizes not only academic success, but also rewards students for attendance and for improvement in various areas.
A number of local businesses participate in the program, too, by giving away food, drinks, gift certificates, etc.
High School Principal Teresa Nash told the students at the beginning of the assembly Monday morning that every student has an opportunity to be recognized by Renaissance.
Following is a list of awards that were presented and the names of those students who received the awards. Photos of the various groups will be included in this and future editions of the Herald.
