One student who re-enrolled in school had improved her attendance and academics and excelled in the school musical.
Another student suffered injuries, keeping him off of the football field and basketball court, but he was still on the sidelines cheering and pulling for his teammates.

Several others were noted for their upbeat attitude, leadership, growth, hard work and willingness to help others.
Thirty-eight Brownstown Central High School students all now share one other description — very important person.
They were recognized during the annual VIP Breakfast on April 21 in the school’s cafeteria. Joining them were their parents and the staff member who nominated them for the honor.
Assistant Principal Mark DeHart said being described as hard-working, caring, punctual, dependable, friendly or respectful doesn’t just happen by luck or by chance.
“We all know those things are reinforced. They are taught at home around the company you keep. Here at school, they are reinforced,” he said. “It’s wonderful to be able to honor a few of our kids. We have a lot of other kids out there in our school, and it’s no surprise we have such a great school because of these individuals right here that come to school every day and make this a wonderful high school.”
