Six local students make WCA’s first honor roll
Five local students have landed spots on Willamette Connections Academy’s first honor roll.
The Oregon-based K-12 online public school has recognized hundreds of students across the state for “outstanding academic achievement” during the first semester of the 2020-21 academic year.
The local honorees are: fourth-grader Eva Piller and ninth-grader Maximilian Whitney from Ashland; first-grader Hadrian Boehm of Central Point; kindergartner Serenity Hutter and third-grader Makenzie Hoffman of Medford; and ninth-grader McKenna Cook from Rogue River.
According to WCA, the school’s honor roll qualifications vary by grade level. Students in kindergarten through eighth grade are eligible for the honor roll if they have received “As” in all their classes during the first semester of the academic year. Ninth- through 12th-grade students must achieve a GPA of 3.75 or better to make the honor roll.
“On behalf of the administration, teachers and counselors at Willamette Connections Academy, we congratulate all the students who earned a spot on the honor roll,” said Chris Long, Willamette Connections Academy principal. “There's no question it has been a challenging year for everyone, so we're thrilled to recognize this year's list of honor roll students.”
