On June 9th, BHS held its annual Book Awards Ceremony, where select BHS students received awards for standing out in our various departments. The English Department is proud of the five winners of our departmental awards this year.
The 21st Century Book Awards are given out each year to one student in each grade who has shown the greatest improvement in his or her English class. This year’s winners were:
Class of 2016: Kerri Mackey
Class of 2017: Ashlee Grace
Class of 2018: Billy Robinson
Class of 2019: Jamie Theirrien
And the Brown Book Award goes out annually to a student who shows excellent verbal and written skills. This year’s winner was Aysha Afzal – earlier this year, Aysha won the Collab Poetry Contest, and she is one of the members of the BHS Slam Poetry Team.
Congratulations to our five winners, and to all other recipients of the BHS Book Awards!
