Academic Letter Awards

On September 15, 2023, Columbus Grove High School recognized 69 students in grades 10-12 who earned the Academic Letter based on their academic performance last school year.  The Academic Letter program is designed to acknowledge excellence in the classroom by giving a Letter, similar to an Athletic Letter, to students who maintain a 3.5 grade point average or higher for the entire school year.  Students were called down to the Commons where they received their Academic Letter.  In addition, students were treated to donuts and juice as a small incentive for their hard work and dedication in the classroom.  Those students who received this Letter are as follows:
