Night of awards

June 1, 2011

More than one-third of the graduating class of 216 was recognized with a little more than $2 million in financial awards or other honors in front of a packed house at the Wapakoneta Performing Arts Center Tuesday.
“We thought this was an exceptional class,” Wapakoneta High School Principal Aaron Rex said. “We really pushed kids to apply for scholarships this year. The parents and our guidance counselors deserve a lot of the credit — and the students should be proud of their hard work in the class and at home. The students will be able to come out of college without as much debt.”
