SCHOLARSHIPS AND AWARDS
Many awards and scholarships are offered by school and community organizations on an annual basis. Students are encouraged to make themselves aware of these awards and scholarships by consulting with their counselors and reviewing the scholarship lists on the school website.
At the end of each nine weeks grading period and at the end of each semester, students who meet the following requirements are placed on one of the following Honor Rolls:
1. Superior Honor Roll = No grade lower than an A- for the grading period
2. Honor Roll = No grade lower than a B- for the grading period A grade of B or C in a weighted course is equivalent to an A or B in determining the honor roll.
TOP TEN AWARDS
Academic plaques will be presented annually to the ten highest academically ranked students in each of the four classes.
Each curricular department of the high school will annually award a trophy to the outstanding student in that department.
ACADEMIC LETTER FOR ACADEMIC TEAM MEMBERS
An academic letter will be granted to an Academic Team member who, by the end of the sophomore year (fourth semester), has participated in at least two different squads each year, or, by the end of the junior and/or senior year, has participated in at least one squad each year of high school. If an Academic Team member has received an academic “S” for another reason, a second letter will not be issued. A bar will be granted instead.
ACADEMIC LETTER S
An Academic Letter S will be awarded to those students who earn all A’s for the first semester and all A’s (no B’s) for the first grading period of the second semester. **A grade of a B in an AP course is the equivalent of an A on the school’s grading scale.** Members of the Academic Team and members of the National Honor Society will also receive this award. The letter S will be presented to the student the first time he/she achieves this honor. The student will receive additional academic pins if he/she achieves a second or third honor.
The Valedictory Award is presented annually to the senior having the highest four-year grade point average (calculated to the third decimal place) after eight semesters. Shelbyville High School will award multiple Valedictory Awards should more than one student achieve the same grade point average when calculated to the third decimal place. The recognition consists of a scholarship medal and the honor of the recipient’s name being engraved on a plaque, which hangs on a wall near the main entrance of Shelbyville High School.
The Salutatory Award is presented annually to the senior having the second highest four-year grade point average (calculated to the third decimal place) after eight semesters. Shelbyville High School will award multiple Salutatory Awards should more than one student achieve the same grade point average when calculated to the third decimal place.
