Plaques and certificates were presented Wednesday at Kate Griffin Junior High School's Annual Awards Day.

Students who excelled in academics, electives and sports were recognized for their achievement.

In fact, a total of 325 awards were presented during the ceremony.

"My challenge is for all of our students to try to perform the best that they can achieve. A lot of times at this age they don't focus on it, but my challenge is for them to do better next year," said Principal Vicky Hood.

Kate Griffin handed out awards in categories ranging from art, band and music, to sports and the highest academic honors.
