Annual Awards Day (400 Awards - 1975)

Recognition for excellence in a great variety of extra-curricular activities were given during the annual awards day ceremonies at Neillsville High School last week.

Included was the announcement of winners of a total of more than $2,250 in scholarships. Gary Lukes, class valedictorian, led the list with the Laird Foundation Scholarship of $1,000 and a $500 Nelson Muffler scholarship. Sandra Rhoades received a $500 Luther College scholarship; and Lori Smagacz received a $250 Nelson Muffler grant.

(Note: A very long list, 2 columns long, of students who received various awards ‘about 400 awards’ in Vocal and Instrumental Music, Science, Home Ec., Phy Ed., Math, Art, Ag, Business, Cheerleading, Speech, Letter Winners in all sports and others I may have missed. DMK)
