Three Troy Seniors Honored
Troy High School Students Awarded Academic Honors
Three seniors from Troy High School and their parents attended the University of Kansas’ Honors Program banquet held in Atchison, KS on February 22. The purpose of the program is to honor students in the top 10% of senior classes from area schools. Also in attendance were Superintendent of Schools Patrick McKernan and Troy High School Principal Josh Hevel.
Cuttar Huss (son of Don & Jill Huss), Connor McNorton (son of Kevin & Candy McNorton), and Blair Weishaar (daughter of Duane & Jamie Weishaar) were awarded honors in recognition of their academic excellence throughout their high school careers.
“We were part of a select few, so it’s something to be proud of,” replied Huss when asked what it meant to him to attend the Kansas Honors Program banquet.
“It was a great honor,” Weishaar reiterated.
The schedule for the evening included dinner, entertainment, a speaker, and the awards ceremony. The students were called onto the stage and individually recognized for their academic achievements, as well as receiving a Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary.
Huss plans to attend Northwest Missouri State University where he will play football and major in pre-dental studies. McNorton intends to attend Kansas State University where he will major in Engineering. Weishaar intends to enroll at Highland Community College before transferring to Cleveland Chiropractic.
The students wish to say a special thank you to their teachers for holding high academic standards and helping them throughout their high school careers, to Mr. McKernan and Mr. Hevel for attending the banquet, and to their parents for their attendance at the ceremony and their continuous support through the years.
