The 32nd Annual Students of Excellence Banquet and Recognition Ceremony was held on Wednesday, April 24, 2019 at the River’s Edge Convention Center. In addition to individuals from Resource Training & Solutions and the Minnesota Department of Education, School Board members, educators, parents, and school administrators attended the event.
The program for the evening included dinner, various speakers, a keynote address, a plaque/certificate ceremony, and a photo session. More than 500 people attended the event honoring 139 students from 34 high schools throughout Central Minnesota. These exemplary seniors will soon graduate from regional high schools and will no doubt, go on to achieve great things.
Criteria for selection to the Recognition Event were based upon recommended guidelines that included such things as academic performance, being a positive role model, and leadership. Resource Training & Solutions has been sponsoring, coordinating and supporting this event since 1987. Since the recognition ceremony’s inception, more than 4,800 high school seniors have been recognized.
