KAUKAUNA — Kaukauna High School held its annual Academic Awards night on Sunday, May 1, honoring high-achieving students for their accomplishments during the 2021-2022 school year.

New this year, the Laude System was used in conjunction with the class rank system. Students earning at least a 3.5 cumulative GPA by the end of their second trimester their senior year (at which time Laude points are calculated) qualified for honors, according to a news release from the high school.

Students earning honors designations in two departments were recognized as Cum Laude, or honors. Students earning honors designations in three departments were recognized as Magna Cum Laude, or high honors. Students earning honors designations in four or more departments were recognized as Summa Cum Laude, or highest honors.

2022 Seniors were also eligible for the following awards:

Valedictorian and Salutatorian
Those students that have attained the highest cumulative grade point average through four semesters and five trimesters were awarded a Valedictorian Medal to be worn at the graduation ceremony. Those students that have attained the second highest cumulative grade point average through four semesters and five trimesters were awarded a Salutatorian Medal to be worn at the graduation ceremony.

President’s Education Award
Seniors were also eligible for the President’s Education Award in one of two categories. Those students that have earned seven or eight academic points with combination of semesters and trimesters of High Honors received President’s Award of Achievement and pin. Those who have attained four semesters and five trimesters received President’s Award of Excellence and pin.

Academic Stole and Letter
Students earning a 3.75 or higher semester grade point average (High Honors) were eligible to earn academic awards. Those students accomplishing this achievement during seven terms received an academic letter; those who did so for nine terms received a graduation stole.
