Congratulations also to members of the Class of 2025 who were recognized at our Junior Book Award/College Sponsored Recognitions ceremony last Thursday afternoon. The recognition of juniors with college book awards and other college-sponsored prizes is both an annual tradition at Providence Academy and an enduring tradition at college preparatory institutions across the globe.  PA Upper School leaders meet annually to select students from the junior class for these awards.  As was noted during the ceremony, selection is based on consideration of the criteria provided by the award sponsor.  Most of the awards stipulate high academic standing as a leading criterion (typically a minimum of unweighted GPA of 3.7 and above); many of them also specify other criteria for the committee to consider as well, including extracurricular leadership, commitment to community service or volunteerism, notable civic engagement, demonstrated creativity or innovation, leadership in faith activities or ministry at PA or at one’s church, and/or high accomplishment in specific academic disciplines.  Congratulations to this year’s recipients:
