Who chooses the winners for the “special” awards at high school west? Many people I know were nominated who are very involved and lots of things for the school but instead a person who has not so good grades and does little for the school wins?

A.  The 9th Grade Awards Selection Committee is made up of teachers, counselors, administrators, and a representative from the PTSA.  According to the descriptions of the “special” awards, academic achievement carries greater weight when determining the Neil Hesson Award winners than the other two awards.  All of this year’s award recipients were quite involved with the school and local community.
