High School Seniors' Recognition Program

The High School Seniors' Recognition Program was created in 1976, when Mrs. LaVerne Rand presented this idea to the members of the Beta Mu Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. 

The program was designed to recognize students who demonstrated significant achievements while still in high school.  Over 40 years later, the High School Seniors Recognition Program has continued honoring the ideals upon which it was founded.  The program continues to recognize high school seniors for their academic achievements, extracurricular involvement, and community and civic engagement in addition to scholarship awards which became a part of the program in more recent years. 

Student seminars focus on life after high school, whether that is attending college, joining the armed forces or entering the workforce.  Seminars usually include college preparation, money management, etiquette, healthy living and mental & spiritual well-being.
