Named for the beloved and respected principal at the Rosenwald School, the awards recognize: Principal’s awards; perfect attendance; A/B honor roll listings; level 4 and 5 proficiency on state exams; college readiness on the PreACT; success in honors- or AP-level high school courses and dual-enrollment college courses; attainment of national or industry credentials in Career/Technical Education courses; specialized diploma endorsements; and scholarship awards.
