HONORS Follows you FAR Beyond School

Honors is a way of life. Being designated as an Honors Student is far more then academic accolade; it is a tangible symbol of the way you approach life. It is a symbol that represents you well as you enter the work world. It is a solid foundation on which to build a career.
