Woodlawn High School held it’s annual Honor Roll Breakfast on the morning of Thursday, February 3, 2017. Over 150 students were recognized by administration for their outstanding academic achievements during the first semester. In order to be invited to the breakfast, students had to have only A’s and/or B’s on their first semester report card.
Brandy Williams, Assistant Principal at Woodlawn, was in charge of the program. She was happy with the outcome of the breakfast.
“We were extremely pleased with the number of students recognized this year,” said Williams. “The students here today represent the best that Woodlawn has to offer, and we were proud to be able to recognize them and give back to them for working so hard during the first semester.”
Food for the breakfast was provided by Woodlawn’s Pro Start students, who are taught by Chef Steven Oubre. Pro Start students were also present at the breakfast to serve the honor roll students. The breakfast included eggs, bacon, grits, and biscuits that were all prepared in Chef Oubre’s classroom.
Junior Tamiia Williams was one of the students recognized at the breakfast for earning A’s and B’s during the fall semester.
“I felt important for being invited to the breakfast. I appreciated that our hard work was being recognized and not being overlooked. It gives us something to look forward to,” said Tamiia when asked about how she felt when being told she was invited to the breakfast.
When asked about how her mother felt about the breakfast, Tamiia’s face lit up with a smile. “It made my mom extremely happy to see me recognized in front of my peers and it made her feel really proud as a parent.”
