BISD proudly recognizes students at Academic Awards Banquet

BHS students receive awards for academic excellence

Hard work did pay off for Belton High School sophomores, juniors and seniors who were honored Tuesday evening for their academic achievements.

The 2018 Academic Awards Banquet was held at the Bell County Expo Center to recognize students in the top five-percent of their class. National Merit Commended Scholars, National Merit Hispanic Scholars and students in the top 95thpercentile nationally of PSAT test-takers also received awards.

Seniors invited their educational mentor to attend the event with them. Programs detailed students’ personal tributes to their mentors.

In keeping with tradition, students received either the prized Belton blanket, jacket, sweatshirt or plaque and an academic honors patch.
