The Walter F. Kruschke Chapter of the National Honor Society from Rhinelander High School will be hosting the school’s annual Awards Ceremony this spring on Monday, April 23, at 6:30 p.m., in the RHS auditorium.
This formal event commemorates the achievements of high school students by allowing faculty and community members to publicly recognize the important awards students have earned during the year.
More than 200 students will be receiving awards, and accomplished groups such as Mock Trial and Poetry Out Loud will be presented at the ceremony. Additionally, individual awards like the Mathematical Association of America, National Financial Literacy Program and Solo and Ensemble awards will be announced.
Throughout the evening, the RHS music department will perform; audience members will have the chance to hear the Green Shades Jazz Band and the Shodags, the RHS show choir.
“For Green Shades to play at the Awards Ceremony is a fantastic opportunity for us to perform for a lot of people who don’t normally hear the band,” said Green Shades instructor Connie Piasecki. “And we like to be present at events here [at the high school]. I really like this awards evening because this is [the chance] for all of the music students, whether they’re in jazz band, show choir, or brass ensemble, to let all of the people know that these kids are going to Solo Ensemble.”
Beginning at 5:45 p.m., guests may choose to sample a variety of foods prepared by the ProStart students while viewing a gallery of high school students’ art.
