Top award


Gorton Junior High School eighth grader Robert Pierce was a recipient of the Principal’s Award at Tuesday’s Honors Night ceremony where 68 students were inducted into the National Junior Honor Society and recognized with departmental awards. The Principal’s Award, explained Gorton Principal Jeff Taylor, who is pictured here with Pierce, is selected on the basis of a student’s academic performance over their two years at the school, as well as their contribution to the school and teacher input. While his parents knew he would receive the award, it came as a complete surprise to Pierce. The event, which was coordinated by English teacher and Social Arts Coordinator Robyn MacDonald, lasted about two hours and included selections played by the Gorton Band and Chorus and a reception in the school cafeteria.
