Academic Achievement Awards

  • In 2018 a new award was established called the Academic Achievement Award. Each year, it will be given to people who have graduated from GHS and have immediately gone on to college, university, or a military academy and have distinguished themselves by their grades and the type of degree that they earned, the awards and honors that they have been given, their extracurricular activities, as as well as any community service they may have provided.

    Nominations are currently being accepted for the 2024 GHS Academic Achievement Award.  Inductions take place each year at our "Academic Awards Night".  The nomination form is linked below and are due to Mrs. Kasey Bobo by US mail or email by April 8, 2024.
