HHS seniors honored at assembly

During the annual Hutchinson High School Awards Assembly Wednesday (May 1, 2019), the HHS graduating class of 2019 was recognized with awards and scholarships from local, state and national sources.

The Young American Award winner for 2019 was Lydia Johnson. The Young American Award is the oldest award at HHS with this being its 90th award. The award was started by the Oswald family in the 1920s.

Awards Assembly on May 1

While many schools conduct numerous all-school assemblies during the year, Hutchinson High School has very few with only one — the Senior Awards Assembly – bringing everyone together at the same time. This year’s assembly will start at 9:30 a.m. Wednesday, May 1, in the Salthawk Activity Center.

            This is a time when the district celebrates the accomplishments of its seniors in a very public way. Scholarships earned by the students will be announced as well as other student and staff awards.

            Parents of seniors and the public are invited to the event.

Two Hutchinson USD 308 elementary schools were named as Apollo schools by the Kansas State Board of Education today (April 16, 2019). The state Board approved Wiley Elementary School and Hutchinson Magnet School at Allen as Apollo schools.

Under the program, districts designate schools to be redesigned around five outcomes that include improving graduation rates, post-secondary success, kindergarten readiness, individualized learning and social-emotional skills.
