Outstanding students at Northwest Middle School were recognized Thursday for their academic achievement.
A Five Star Luncheon was held for 33 students who excelled in several ways this past nine weeks.
Their teachers say these students demonstrated responsibility and trustworthiness.
The top students made the A Honor Roll, had no office referrals, and no unexcused absences.
"For students to be leaders in their community, they need to be able to follow through with things that they start, have self-discipline when it comes to their grades and respecting adults and be able to set goals and meet those goals," said lead teacher, Marsha Ramia.
Mayor Cheri Berry was the special guest for the luncheon.
