Eight students are National Honor Society members with five earning highest honors with a cumulative GPA of 3.9-4.0, one with high honors of a cumulative GPA of 3.75-3.89 and one with honors of a cumulative GPA of 3.5-3.75.

Four additional awards were presented. The Prudential Spirit of Community Award was presented to Daniel Hammond andGeovanny Sanchez. The Worcester Telegram Award went to Danielle Malivert. Evan Garrity received the Caring Heart Award. Michaela Hernandez was the first recipient of Melissa Martinez Kidder scholarship.

We were honored to welcome alumnus Melissa Kidder, class of 1982, to present this scholarship. The scholarship was established this year by Lanu Stoddart Williams to honor her friend diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer. The scholarship is awarded to students going to a SDA college to study STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, mathematics). Donations to this scholarship can made in the business office at SLA.

We applaud the accomplishments of each student. We see bright things in their future and look forward to seeing them return to SLA as shining examples of God's love in their lives.

 Many alumni attended the graduation ceremonies. We welcome each of these alumni back to SLA at any time.
