In 1984, a group of high school principals met to develop a program to honor and encourage excellence, integrity and commitment to the two areas of education deemed most important: learning and teaching. Thus the I-Star award was created.
This award is for seniors only, based on academics and activities. Students indicate the selection of a teacher, counselor or administrator who the student believes has made the strongest contribution to their individual and scholastic development. Any educator in Rush County Schools is eligible for nomination. Schools participating in this program are Centerville, Connersville, Franklin County, Hagerstown, Cambridge City/Lincoln, Rushville, Tri and Union County.
Congratulations to this year’s winners from RCHS: Mariah Fenimore and teacher Mrs. Karen Brashaber; Becca Riggs and teacher Mrs. Carol Fenimore; and Kayla Shelton and teacher Ms. Meagan Hearne.
This year’s honor dinner and ceremony will be held at Cambridge City Lincoln Middle School/High School at 6 p.m. on Thursday, March 6. Excellence, integrity and commitment – three more reasons why “Rush County Schools Are A Great Place To Be.”
