Two Seaford High School Seniors To Be Honored for Outstanding Academic Achievement
Secretary of Education Steve Godowsky will honor top students from the Class of 2016 at the annual Secretary of Education Scholars banquet Monday, April 18, 2016 at Dover Downs Hotel in Dover.

The students’ accomplishments will be celebrated by some of the state’s political and education leaders, who will be joined by their families, district superintendents, heads of charter schools and principals. The number of scholars from each school is based on enrollment, and students are selected by their principals based on both their academic records and community service.

“These scholars all have achieved incredible academic success, and they also have been important contributors to their school governments, service groups, arts productions, sports teams and after-school clubs. Many also have jobs and volunteer in their communities. They balance all of these demands of their time to still study hard and excel academically,” Godowsky said. “We’re all proud of them, and I know their families and educators are as well.”

Congratulations to MATTHEW KING and BROCK WILLEY who were selected as 2016 Secretary of Education Scholars for Seaford School District.
