On May 24, Fairmont celebrated its extraordinary students with an award ceremony that distinguished a student’s specific talent. Earlier in the day awards were given to the senior class during the annual Senior Farewell. Awards given Tuesday night were for all 9th-11th grade students. The awards given are based on progress throughout the year, and only one student is picked from each class subject. The award represents not only a good grade in the class, but the student’s understanding of the subject. This year’s ceremony commenced and six thirty sharp, although food and beverages were provided for those who came early. Payel Patel, 2011-2012 ASB President led the Pledge of Allegiance to begin the evening. Ms. Ghandi and Mr. Mendoza followed with brief speeches of their own, which led into the distribution of awards. The celebration came to an end with the distribution of the class awards, and students and parents attending the ceremony were able to munch on snacks and talk to friends.
