Students win awards and plan activities

Thanksgiving might quiet the halls for a few days, but there is still plenty happening at Carson High School. Winter sports and activities are gearing up for another season. Exams are right around the corner. Here are a few other highlights:

The Academic Letter was a celebration of high academic achievements held on Nov. 13th. Student Activities Director Jennifer Tartan indicated that there were a few mistakes in the program that need to be rectified.

Receiving an award for the first time and earning a letter were Justin Allbritten, Brittney Allen and Sara Anderson.

Receiving an award for the second time and earning a pin was Yadira Duarte. And receiving an award for the third time and earning a patch was Gordon Lee. We apologize to these students for the mistakes and congratulate them on their success.
