Students honored for exceptional character and academic excellence
Miller Place High School recently recognized a group of outstanding students at its 23rd annual OAK (Outstanding Acts of Kindness) and OAR (Outstanding Academic Recognition) ceremony. Students were recommended by staff members for performing inspiring acts of kindness or demonstrating excellent work ethic in their classes.
“Students chosen to be honored at our OAK and OAR ceremony have shown exemplary behavior through their compassion and kindness or through remarkable academic progress and performance,” said Superintendent of Schools Mr. Seth Lipshie. “They represent our community with outstanding pride and are excellent role models for their peers. We are so proud to honor them at our OAK and OAR ceremony.”
OAK award recipients are recommended for performing gestures of kindness and displaying compassion without expecting anything in return. OAR award recipients are recommended for achieving academic excellence by maintaining high scores, improving their scores or taking harder courses and rising to educational challenges that may be outside of their comfort zone.
