Clay High School Seniors Honored for Outstanding Educational Achievement

Five members of the class of 2010 from Clay High School have received the High Schools That Work (HSTW) Award of Educational Achievement. High school seniors who have completed a challenging program of study and demonstrated readiness for employment and for college receive this award from the Southern Regional Education Board (SREB). This year's award recipients are Kylie Davis, Morgan Garrett, Christopher Maxie, Brian Summers, and Katie Wheeler.

According to Todd Warnock, Clay HS principal, “These students are to be commended for their efforts. They have taken challenging courses in high school and scored high on rigorous exams and, by doing so, they have increased the likelihood of success in the workplace and further education.”

For more than 10 years, the HSTW Award of Educational Achievement has been used to recognize students at HSTW and TCTW sites who complete a rigorous high school curriculum and perform at a college- and career-ready level. To earn the award, students must complete a college-preparatory course of study in at least two of three subject areas (English/language arts, mathematics and/or science); complete a concentration in a career/technical area, mathematics/science or the humanities; and meet the readiness goals in all three subject areas on the HSTW Assessment.

Only a small percentage of students who take the assessment each year meet or exceed these high standards and earn an award. Presenting these awards to qualified seniors sends a signal to award recipients, parents and other students at your school that it is important to complete a rigorous high school curriculum and do well in both academic and career/technical classes.

The Southern Regional Education Board is a multi-state compact for education, founded in 1948. High Schools That Work, launched in 1987, is the largest high school improvement effort in the United States, with more than 1,100 school sites in 31 states, the District of Columbia, and Calgary, Canada. Founded in 2007, the Technology Centers That Work (TCTW) school improvement model has more than 125 technology centers in 12 states.
