Superintendent’s Honors Night recognizes seniors, favorite teachers

Dearborn Public Schools is proud to invite the public this year to view our special 36th Annual Superintendent’s Honors Night program recognizing both our student scholars and the teachers who most inspired them.

The pre-recorded program will be shown on May 19 starting at 7 p.m. on the District’s Facebook and YouTube and cable television channel.  The program, less than an hour long, will be available on the district’s YouTube channel any time after the premiere.  

Every year, the highest performing high school seniors from across the district are invited to participate in Superintendent’s Honors Night. Invitations are sent to any qualifying student from Dearborn, Edsel Ford, Fordson or Magnet high schools and the Henry Ford Early College and HFEC Advanced Manufacturing. This year, 392 students who had a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.7, had achieved seven semesters of high school credit, and are expecting to graduate in June were invited to participate.  

As in years past, invited students were asked to select a current Dearborn Public Schools educator who has had a significant impact on their success. Traditionally, the participating student would honor their chosen teacher in-person at a large ceremony at the Ford Community and Performing Arts Center.

However, for the second time due to the pandemic, students this year were instead asked to submit a short video of themselves explaining the impact this teacher had on their education.  Participating students selected 72 teachers to honor.

Those videos have been combined with comments from school officials to make this year’s Superintendent’s Honors Night program.

For a complete list of the students invited, please see our Superintendent’s Honors Night program.

Congratulations to both the students and teachers honored by the program.
