The Kiwanis Club of Cabot will recognize nearly two hundred juniors and seniors of Cabot High School with its 10th annual honor banquet at 7 p.m. Thursday, April 20 at the Cabot Junior High School North cafeteria. Academic achievement certificates will be given to students who have maintained a cumulative grade point average above 3.5.
“These young men and women are our future leaders,” said Chris Roberts, president of the Kiwanis Club of Cabot.
“It is important to the Kiwanis Club to commend them on their outstanding academic achievements while giving them our support as they move into the next steps of their lives. Kiwanis and Cabot are proud of these young people.”
The Kiwanis Club hosts the banquet each year to recognize the top students and to encourage academic excellence in the Cabot school system.
The students get a free meal catered by Crossroads Café and Catering of Cabot. Parents and guests wishing to attend must purchase a ticket for the meal at the Cabot High School Principal’s Complex by Tuesday, April 18.
“These students have worked hard to reach their goals and as a Kiwanian it is a pleasure to recognize the accomplishments of not only the students but their parents who have provided their support,” said Teresa Wojciechowski-Allen of the Kiwanis Club of Cabot.
For the past 10 years, the Kiwanis Club of Cabot has endeavored to encourage students to achieve academic excellence and be involved in community service through youth organizations such as K-Kids at Eastside Elementary, Central Elementary, Ward Central Elementary, Magness Creek Elementary and Northside Elementary; Builders Clubs in Cabot Middle School North, Cabot Middle School South, and Cabot Junior High School North as well the Key Club at Cabot High School.
“We award two $1,000 scholarships to graduating students of Cabot High School to encourage post-secondary education,” said Jim Thompson of the Kiwanis Club of Cabot.
“We have seen a growth in the number of students maintaining a higher grade-point average since we started this recognition program ten years ago. That was our hope and we are delighted that it is being realized.”
