RCHS Awards Day

The end of the school year brings with it recognition and scholarships for many students at Rushville Consolidated High School. On May 15, 2014 over 300 students were recognized as faculty and fellow students celebrated their efforts.

The first award went to Abigail Gulde as she was given the National Merit Scholarship. She placed among the top five percent of more than one million students who entered the 2014 competition by taking the preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test.

The RCHS Class of 2014 recognized 56 students who will receive an Academic Honors Diploma, two who will receive the Technical Honors Diploma, and 59 who are designated as Twenty-First Century Scholars.

There were 69 College Scholarship awarded and 57 scholarships awarded by the Rush County Community Foundation. The impact of these scholarship is far reaching as RCHS students are given this support toward their goal of higher education.

Two inaugural presentations took place. The first “Character In Action” award for outstanding character at RCHS and the wider community went to Michael Ford. Likewise, the first annual “Leave Your Mark” award was given for one who distinguishes themselves as a rare individual by their hard work and contributions to RCHS and the wider community. This award went to Jessica Miller.

Departmental Awards went to 21 students and 13 senior athletes received awards. Senior All Sports Award Blankets were given to graduating seniors who lettered in three sports during their senior year.

The National Honor Society gave awards to eight seniors, six juniors, four sophomores and two freshman who rank academically at the top of their classes.

Underclass Departmental Awards were given to 25 students as well as for outstanding writing, SADD, essay contest winners and Academic Team Awards.

The award programs continued by recognizing 60 senior Varsity Scholars, 34 junior Varsity Scholars, 30 sophomore Varsity Scholars and 20 freshman Varsity Scholars.

The program was concluded by recognizing perfect attendance for all four years at RCHS. This honor was achieved by Kristina Spaeth. In addition, 28 students were recognized for perfect attendance during the 2013-14 school year.
