The Elwood-John H. Glenn High School community held a special ceremony to celebrate the school’s National Blue Ribbon title on Nov. 15. A flag, announcing the title awarded by the United States Department of Education, was raised in front of the school.
Those in attendance included Superintendent Dr. Kenneth Bossert, Principal Mrs. Carisa Burzynski, district administration, board of education members, and many high school students.
“We are so proud of the progress we’ve made in closing the achievement gap at our school,” said Mrs. Burzyski, “but we couldn’t have done it without you all —your hard work and dedication to your education is what made this recognition a reality.”
Dr. Bossert also took a moment to commend the school community for this prestigious achievement. “
The flag that now waves overhead is a trademark of excellence — and you should take pride in the fact that you attend a school that now holds a title that such a small percentage of schools hold across the nation!”
