AHS announces high distinction graduates
Austin Public Schools has announce the high distinction graduates for the Class of 2020.
Seniors graduating with high distinction have earned a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 3.9 or above throughout their high school career. Those graduating with high distinction are honored at a celebration with their families.
As a part of this celebration they are asked to honor an educator who has made an impression on their education.
The governor’s orders did not allow for an in-person celebration, so a virtual celebration was created for these students, their families, and their honored educators. This has been shared with families. A short video has been created for the Austin Public Schools website (www.austin.k12.mn.us) that shows the pictures of these students.
