A Celebration of Division's High Achievers
Division Avenue High School's Class of 2018 top achievers attended the school's annual Blue and Silver Luncheon on Nov. 30 to celebrate their hard work and dedication throughout their high school careers. The seniors were joined by members of the board of education, Superintendent of Schools Tonie McDonald, Central Office administrators, Division Avenue High School administration and guidance counselors.
Prior to a delicious meal, each table was challenged to a friendly icebreaker competition to see who could guess the names of the 20 colleges that students are applying to from a photo slideshow. The two winning tables won admission tickets to the school's upcoming Spirit Night.
Following the activity, the seniors heard praises from Principal John Coscia and Dr. McDonald on their remarkable high school careers.
"They will move on from Division Avenue High School in June to attend the best colleges and universities that this country has to offer and will continue to make a profound impact on the world around them," said Coscia. "I am proud to have watched them grow from ninth grade all the way through their senior year and they have become the finest students at Division Avenue High School."
Each student shared a PowerPoint slide that they created and revealed the colleges they have applied to, their intended majors, most memorable moments in high school and what they willmiss most upon graduating.
