The 33rd Annual Superintendent’s Honors Night took place May 17th at the Ford Community and Performing Arts Center. This year, almost 300 high school seniors from Dearborn, Edsel Ford, Fordson, and Henry Ford Early College took part in the event.
Superintendent’s Honors Night was established to celebrate students who have maintained a 3.6 or higher grade point average throughout all four years of high school. The highlight of the event is when students recognize a teacher, principal, coach, or other staff member that has made a significant impact on their education. Students and their selected guest are called up on stage where they are presented with a certificate and students are provided with a brief moment to share with the audience the reason they selected their special guest.
In his comments to the students, Dearborn Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Glenn Maleyko reminded them that although they have accomplished a great deal to this point, there is still much to learn. He went on to explain how each of them has talents, skills, abilities, and interests that are yet to be discovered. He encouraged the student to never sto
p developing those talents and skills because those undiscovered abilities and interests could make the biggest difference in their life or in the lives of others.
Honors night continues to grow each year with more and more students achieving the required grade point average. The event is a great celebration of student success and recognition of the talented and dedicated staff in the Dearborn Public Schools. Special thanks to all of the administrators at each of the high schools for their efforts to support the Honors Night event.
