More than 570 students from 98 Aurora-area schools will be recognized for their contributions to community, school
The Aurora City Council will honor more than 570 students from 98 schools in Aurora in April through its ninth annual Aurora Scholars program.
Students in Cherry Creek School District, Aurora Public Schools and private Aurora-area schools will be recognized at the following ceremonies:
• April 25, 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., Overland High School, 12400 E. Jewell Ave.
• April 26, 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., Hinkley High School, 1250 Chambers Road
The Aurora Scholars program – designed to identify those students who strongly contributed to the life and community of their respective schools – was created as a way for the city of Aurora, schools and families to come together to celebrate the achievements of Aurora’s future leaders.
Including first grade through high school, this program recognizes one student from every grade level in every school in Aurora. The Aurora Scholars program has honored more than 3,500 students since its inception.
The selection of students is conducted by the school principals, who may receive input from teachers and guidance counselors. The Aurora Scholars program aims to honor not just those who excel academically, but also those who may be excellent athletes, great citizens, dedicated volunteers or otherwise make significant contributions within the school community.
At the citywide ceremonies, students will receive a key lanyard, certificate and bumper sticker. Students receiving recognition this year will be listed on the city website following the ceremonies.
