MFL MarMac High School held an academic achievement assembly Sept. 21, recognizing the hard work and leadership of many students.

“We’re recognizing those of you who have stepped up in the classroom and stepped up to be leaders,” stated principal Larry Meyer to those gathered at the assembly.

High school, he noted, is one of the best places to learn how to become a leader. 

“There are so many opportunities for you to become a leader—in the classroom, on the football field, in band,” he said. “But the most important aspect of your life where you can be a leader is in the ability to be kind to each other and to do the right thing.”

The first honors given were academic awards to sophomores, juniors and seniors who have maintained a 3.5 grade point average.

Sophomores who earned a patch included Emma Keehner, Koal Klenk, Scotlyn Coenen, Lexy Johnson, Rose Grau, Mackenzy Ruff, Anna Stoddard, Kayden Gillitzer, Avery Ihde, Victor Breuer, Kylee Bries, Max Havlicek, Braden Landt, Colin Moses, Brock Lamborn, Riley Whitney, Marlene Franzen, JJ Lynd, Abby Koslowski and Zoee Gerndt.
