Best of the Class: 2014 Graduating Seniors

Today dozens of graduating seniors were celebrated for being the best of their class.

Each year hundreds of schools across Northern Michigan are asked to nominate seniors with high academic achievements.

109 students were nominated and 80 walked across the stage today – symbolizing something they’ll do again in just a few weeks.

Each received the Governor’s Certificate of Recognition for their dedication to their school work.

Northwestern Michigan College is a sponsor of this year’s event. Executive Director of Marketing and Public Relations at NMC Andy Dolan says, “On behalf of NMC I want to congratulate all of the students that were here today. It’s a culmination of a lot of hard work in high school. We recognize all kinds of excellence and academic excellence is certainly something NMC is proud to help recognize.”

Most of these students have college plans and as NMC says, they’ve committed to a lifetime of learning.
