The Student of the Year Awards Program is designed to recognize outstanding 5th, 8th, and 12th grade students throughout the state of Louisiana.
The program is an excellent opportunity to recognize those students who have demonstrated excellent academic achievement, leadership ability, and citizenship. At a minimum, candidates must have a cumulative GPA of 3.2 on a four-point scale.
At Sherwood Middle all faculty and staff members are given the opportunity to submit the names of outstanding 8th grade students. A committee of administrators, counselors, and teachers will review the nominees and choose the top three candidates. Those three candidates will then be interviewed by 8th grade department chair persons, the principal, and the magnet lead teacher.
