Highland County 2016 Exceptional Achievement Award Recipients

Highland Countians Honored at the Exceptional Achievement Award Recognition Ceremony

Individuals from Highland County were honored recently at the Region 14/Hopewell Center Thirty-third Annual Exceptional Achievement Award Recognition Ceremony at Hillsboro Elementary in Highland County.

Exceptional Achievement Award recipients were cited for services they have provided this past school year to ensure students with disabilities achieve personal, social or academic goals of the highest standards.  This award is a unique recognition since it is granted to a limited number of individuals from throughout the five-counties that Region 14/Hopewell serves and is provided by both parents and educators.  The Exceptional Achievement Award Winners for Highland County are:  Becky Allen, Staci Bales, Janis Bennington, Kathryn Brunck, Melanie Chance, Khrisdee Ernst, Codi Hatten, Hayley Lovett, Lori Newman, and Becky Sink

Megan Rust, a student at Hillsboro City School District was honored as the Outstanding Student Award recipient for Highland County.  She was nominated in the area of extracurricular activity achievement.  Megan was named the overall Outstanding Student Award Winner for the Region and will be recognized for her achievements at a State Ceremony to be held in June in Columbus.  The Outstanding Student is selected by Special Education Administrators and acknowledges the achievements of school-age children and youth with disabilities.

Region14 Governing Board and Parent Advisory Council of the Southern Ohio Educational Service Center sponsored the Exceptional Achievement Award Recognition Ceremony.  They wish to extend their congratulations to the award recipients who have given the most precious gift of all – themselves.
