It's amazing what high school kids can do with a little wood and some tools. Several Thornapple Kellogg High School students received honors and awards in the annual Michigan Industrial and Technology Education Society competition covering woodworking, engineering, drafting and architectural projects from high school students throughout the state.
What happens when three Thornapple Kellogg teams meet with teams from all over the world in Iowa? They enjoy a great time and a cultural experience like none other while representing their school district very well.
Several scholarships, academic and athletic awards were handed out to Thornapple Kellogg seniors at the honors night program recently. TK students are very fortunate to have a number of scholarships awarded through Thornapple Area Enrichment Foundation, which gave out nearly $40,000 in awards to TK students. TK seniors received numerous other scholarships from outside TAEF as well and were honored for their various achievements during high school.
The Thornapple Kellogg High School Class of 2018 started its senior year celebrating the homecoming dance in the football stadium due to unusually hot weather. Appropriately, the weather also determined their final celebration would be in the same stadium Thursday night. The 227 graduating members of the class were reminded by senior Liz Cutlip that wherever they go, their actions matter and will make a difference.
Sometimes a game is about much more than the number of hits or runs scored. Sometimes everyone is a winner. The Thornapple Kellogg Junior Varsity softball team had a game like that last week when they teamed up with Forest Hills Eastern to "Strike Out Cancer."
