On June 11th, at 6:00 p.m, Magruder’s quad was filled with parents anxiously waiting to see their child on stage with their award. Blue and white balloons and congratulations posters decorated the stage.
This night was the highlight of the year and was encouraging to many students who put forth extra effort. Teachers chose students who excelled in school subjects, those who had high marks and excellent citizenship, all year long. This night was a public recognition honoring them for working hard over the school year.
A lot of students received the All-Around award. People given this award were the top students in all subjects, and were determined not only by academics, but also how they contributed to the school. Did you behave in class? Did you have school spirit? Did you ever help out the campus? All of these kids could probably have answered yes.
