Hawks Prairie Heros Award Ceremony

This event is not to be missed!  

Teachers and counselors from North Thurston Public Schools are asked to nominate students who had overcome a social, emotional, or financial barrier to improve themselves in the school environment and/or provide a distinctive service to the school or community. "For some students the opportunities afforded to others just aren't there," said Hawks Prairie Rotarian and Asst. Supt. of NTPS, Brian Wharton, who made the presentations. "There are many scholarships and awards given strictly just for academic achievement. These students have gone above and beyond transcending personal barriers, physical and learning disabilities, family challenges and so much more.yet they all completed graduation requirements and are making plans for their future."
