TRENKAMP SHARES YEAR-END REVIEW

By Nick Trenkamp

Central Superintendent

 

On May 9th I attended Central’s Awards Night, one of my favorite annual ceremonies. It is a great opportunity to recognize and reflect on all the hard work our students have put into their academics and extra curricular activities. This night also highlights the wonderful community support given to Central staff and students. It truly does “take a village to raise a child.”
