The ceremony may have been virtual but the honors—and the dollars—were very real for Antigo High School seniors on Monday.
With classrooms dark due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, Antigo High School held a virtual scholarship awards ceremony, presenting hundreds of thousands of dollars of awards to seniors linked in via the Internet.
Without in-person presenters and recipients, it was a quick ceremony, lasting just over 30 minutes, but the awards were no less meaningful.
‘It is our wish that we could have you here in person to honor these exceptional seniors,” Principal Clint Rogers said, “but the virtual presentation does not diminish these exceptional seniors.”
The top honors of the evening—Academic Excellence Scholars Program / Wisconsin Academic Scholars—was presented by Rogers to Valedictorian Nathan Deep, Salutatorian Brenna Lundgren, and Stella Quinlan.
