The 2016 Stoughton High School Junior Awards
June 8, 2016
Many colleges and universities offer books and certificates to honor the academic, extracurricular, leadership and volunteer work of members of the junior class. Recipients are encouraged to apply to the college or university from which they received their award. While receipt of a book award does not guarantee admission to the college or university, it will get the recipient’s application a second look. Today we will be presenting certificates and book awards to deserving juniors.
