ANKENY, Iowa (October 10, 2018) - Academic letter awards were presented to Ankeny Centennial High School students who had an unweighted cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 3.67 or higher at the end of the 2017-2018 school year.  Also recognized at the ceremony were National Merit honorees Tayler Bloom, Erin Doruska, Samuel Eichhorn, Benjamin Lyons, Zachary Buhman, Jayne Mathis, Zachary Petersen, JohnTolbert; Advance Placement (AP) Scholars Erin Doruska, Meredith King, Lauren McTernan, Caita Pierson, John Tolbert, Nicholas Trout, and David Ziemann.

 
“The learning work in our classrooms is really our core work – it’s why we’re here – but it doesn’t always get the frequent recognition that activities and athletics do,” pointed out ACHS Principal Dr. Jen Lindaman. “This ceremony gives us an opportunity to shine a spotlight on why we’re really here and to celebrate the effort that our students put into their academics every day.”
 
Letters are awarded for the first year of achievement and pins are given for second or third year of achievement. Congratulations to our award winners:
