2019-2020 Senior Academic Achievers - Waco High School

Each year, Waco ISD highlights and celebrates its highest-achieving students at the Academic Achievers Banquets held in the spring. Although schools remain closed for the remainder of this school year, these dedicated students - specifically our seniors - have earned an impressive honor and deserve recognition for this outstanding accomplishment. 

These annual banquets recognize the sophomore, junior and senior students who earn a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 96.5 or higher. The first year a student qualifies as an Academic Achiever, they receive a letter jacket in recognition of the hard work and dedication put toward their education. Those students earning the award in subsequent or multiple years are awarded additional letter “bars” that are added to their jacket.
