Indian Lake Middle School continues to salute students with excellent academic achievement, attendance and attitude.
School administrators inducted 23 new members into the ILMS Academic Hall of Fame during a recent ceremony.
Inductees who are now 9th graders in the Class of 2022 were honored. They are Lindsey Bodi, Phoebe Brielmaier, Colin Burba, Dylan Carter, Kendall Cotterman, Allison Culp, Shania Fruchey, Trenton Fulkerson, Cheyenne Hill, Kaleb Hurley, Paige Kindle-Wyne, Easton Klauer, Ethan Knief, Alexis Lones, Lane McPherson, Dallas Miller, KaLynn Miller, Dylan Pippin, Macie Robinson, Holly Seeley, Ethan Snapp, Rachel Wahl and Caleb Wurster.
Their parents and siblings were on hand for the program held in front of the entire ILMS student body. Not only is the assembly an effort to highlight student achievement, it is also an opportunity for students being recognized to thank special ILMS staff members who helped them during their middle school career.
In order to qualify for the Hall of Fame students must maintain a 3.8 grade point average while at ILMS, maintain a 98 percent attendance rate, be enrolled 70 percent of the semesters during their 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th grade years and not be an excessive discipline problem at school. Co-Principals Missy Mefford and Erin Miller each commended the parents and families for their involvement with their students and their commitment to education.
Mefford told the student body, “These students have achieved something you should all be striving for during your time here at ILMS.”
A reception for inductees and families was held in the ILMS Media Center after the ceremony. This is the 24th class inducted into the ILMS Academic Hall of Fame. Their pictures will be featured in the trophy case this year and hang in the school for years to come.
