Durgee Junior High School held its annual Certificate of Achievement breakfast on May 21 to honor students for their academic efforts over the school year.
The Durgee Building Planning Team coordinates the program to recognize students for the effort they demonstrate in school, good school attendance and community involvement, rather than for the grade average they achieve.
To qualify for the Certificate of Achievement, students had to apply to the program each marking period, and they had to meet certain criteria including a minimum GPA of 75 percent, participation in community and/or school activities, and no more than five absences or tardies per marking period.
Students who earned recognition are:
