Twenty-nine students recognized with 99% Awards

Fall 2018 99% Awards Twenty-nine students were recognized by the Board of Education during the 99% Awards ceremony on October 8. The 99% Awards recognize middle school and high school students who are making a contribution to their school and serve as a role model to their peers, but who may not be getting the recognition they deserve for doing the right thing. They represent the more than 99% of the students in the Wichita Public Schools. Click here to see photos of each recipient

“These students are making contributions to their school and making an impact in the classroom, but they don’t always draw attention to themselves, and we want to make sure they are put in the spotlight,” said Assistant Superintendent Gil Alvarez.
