Board of Education Honors PTHS 209’s Top Achievers with Annual Scholars Luncheon
Forest Park, IL...Proviso Township High Schools’ Board of Education and the Superintendent have partnered with Around the Clock Transportation again this year to honor the top graduates of Proviso East, Proviso West, and Proviso Mathematics and Science Academy.
Last week, each school’s valedictorians, salutatorians, and research scholars were invited to attend the Annual Scholars Luncheon at the world renowned John Hancock Center in downtown Chicago. The Board of Education treated the district’s top achievers to the luncheon as a small reward for their exemplary academic achievements.
"These students have made us all very proud," said Dr. Collins-Hart. "They have worked hard throughout their high school careers to demonstrate academic excellence, responsibility, and accountability. We encourage each of our graduating students to continue to achieve and focus on their goals as they go on to represent their families and PTHS 209 in college and the workforce. I know that greater rewards await them in the future. This is just a small way of saying thank-you and congratulations. We are very proud of you."
Proviso East High School Valedictorian, Stacey Welch; Proviso West Valedictorian, Daniel Rodriguez; Proviso East Salutatorian, Margarito Diaz; Proviso West Salutatorian, Isabel Becerra; and PMSA Scholars, Sreejith Nair and Ryan Neff all received commemorative gifts as they were chauffeured through the city of Chicago via limousine. The limo service was courtesy of Around The Clock Transportation, who donated $300.00 to help congratulate the high achieving graduates.
In addition to the Scholars Luncheon, students were also recognized by the Board of Education at the regularly scheduled May Board of Education meeting. After graduation, the students’ academic success will be immortalized through PTHS 209’s Academic Hall of Fame.
Congratulations, scholars! Keep up the excellent work!
