Southeastern High School’s Honor Roll students took the afternoon off to celebrate their first quarter accomplishment.
The Leadership Swing Out celebrated 92 Honor Roll students who earned a 3.0 grade-point average or higher by the end of the first quarter. Nicholas Patterson, dean of students, coordinated the efforts.
Senior Ariel Myers takes pride in her 4.0 GPA and encourages others to strive for the best.
“Follow your dreams and keep pushing even through your hard times, but always finish first and be proud of yourself,” she said.
This is the third year Patterson has coordinated the Swing Out to celebrate academic achievement in the school.
“Staying focused on your school work is very important,” said Amyre Conley, a junior with a 3.71 GPA.
The students said it was a great way to start the Thanksgiving holiday break.
