Homer High School students are still being recognized for their efforts this year, even if the format is a little different thanks to remote learning.
School counselor Paul Story announced this quarter’s Mariner on the Move awards, which are given out to students for academic and personal success. Since southern Kenai Peninsula schools are operating under remote learning status due to high community transmission of COVID-19, the celebration of the awards was held virtually via Zoom on Monday.
“Each Homer High faculty member selects one outstanding student per year based on scholarship and character,” Story wrote in an email.
The honorees and their family members were invited to the Zoom event.
The winning students for the first quarter are:
Haylee Overson – nominated by Mike Tozzo
Krystal Super – nominated by Alayne Tetor
Aurora Greenstreet – nominated by Sunny Mall
Simon Gucer – nominated by Gordon Pitzman
Braedyn Romeril – nominated by Scot Akers
Caitlin Gamble – nominated by Matt Stineff
Josh Manwiller and Austin Cline – nominated by Michelle Borland
Angelica Haakenson – nominated by Paul Story
