A Salute to Our Scholars!
Each year, Delaware’s Secretary of Education, Susan Bunting, honors select students from the current graduating class for their exemplary work ethic, dedication, and accomplishments both in and out of the classroom. Four William Penn High School students were selected out of 91 public school students for their excellent academic records and community service. Pictured from left to right are, Jay Patel, Orooj Ahmed, Arriana Bisram, and Rachel Gray.
Typically, the students attend a banquet in Dover that had to be canceled.
"I regret that the COVID-19 crisis prevented us from honoring these soon-to-be graduates in person as scheduled. They deserve recognition for their outstanding achievements and leadership in and out of the classroom," Bunting said. "Their success is the result of their hard work and the support of their families and educators. Graduation is the start of a new chapter in their lives, and I can't wait to see how they will continue to excel in college, military service, and their chosen careers.” Congrats to our outstanding Colonials!
