High School Teachers Surprise Senior Science Awardees



Every year, the Highlands High School Science/Math Department honors graduating seniors who have demonstrated outstanding ability in science, math and engineering at the annual Senior Awards Ceremony. This year, due to the Covid-19 school closure, the ceremony was presented virtually. However, HHS teachers Mrs. Vicki Taylor, Mrs. Nicole White and Mrs. Katie Stack surprised the winners at their homes after the virtual ceremony with balloons, certificates and signs in recognition of their achievement. Congratulations to all!
