Schools are back in session across the Copper Country. Students have returned to class and they are busy with homework and all the extra-curricular activities that spice up the academic year.
The Daily Mining Gazette begins its "Student of the Week" feature today (see Page 2C).
Each week, local school officials will offer up the names of their brightest and best students. Not everyone honored is a straight-A student or star athlete, but each comes to the page with high achievements worthy of note.
We'll rotate through the local schools - three each week.
The "Student of the Week" program culminates in May with the awarding of a $1,000 scholarship to the "Student of the Year." Each school will nominate a senior for the award, and applications for the scholarship will be taken and judged by a panel put together by the Gazette's editorial board.
Money for the scholarship comes from the advertisers on the "Student of the Week" page. We thank the school officials and advertizers for their help, but most of all, wish all local students a productive school year.
Study hard and enjoy all that school has to offer!
