Academics for All Awarded Grant Funding

Posted in

Kim and Mary Kay Love through a Wyoming Community Foundation Grant awarded Academics for All $1250.00

The mission of Academics for All is to honor a select set of Sheridan High School seniors who are outstanding scholars, as well as leaders in their school and in our community. Selected students become Summit Award winners.

The selection process for the Summit Award begins with nominations submitted by the high school faculty. Nominated students complete Summit Award applications. Next, the Academics for All committee members review, rank and select approximately twenty winners. The board members then interview and write articles about the winners. Photographic trophies of the winners are produced and prominently displayed in the high school trophy case. Finally, all the winners are recognized at the high school honors award program where cash prizes are given to the top students, as well as to outstanding teachers.

During the last 18 years, with the strong support of our community, more than 407 students have received the Summit Award and over $77,000 have been awarded in prizes. Over 90% of the money we raise goes directly toward recognizing and rewarding outstanding students and educators.
