News Blog Category - News Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb has added another honor to Marion High School senior Truman Bennet’s list: a member of the Governor’s STEM Team, which includes only four high school students in the state.

Gov. Holcomb and Indiana Superintendent of Public Instruction Jennifer McCormick launched the program this spring. The program honors one student in each STEM category for their exemplary performance, including classwork, extracurricular activities, work and research projects, leadership roles, and community service. The Governor’s STEM builds upon the state’s previous Mr. and Ms. Math and Science awards. Truman was selected as the 2017 math award recipient.

"Indiana is well known for its love of sports, but we must also be a state that uplifts its rock star students — especially in the STEM subjects that are fueling the innovation and entrepreneurship to build our economic future," Holcomb said in a statement. "The Governor’s STEM Team will recognize our state’s best and brightest young people with an honor that elevates their status, just as our society does for its finest athletes."

The four winning students will be honored at an awards ceremony on Tuesday, May 30, at the Statehouse and will receive a $1,000 college scholarship and a letter jacket identifying them as members of the team.

News Blog Category - News The Marion High School Class of 2017 visited Marion Community Schools elementary buildings on Friday, May 19, taking a "walk of fame" through the hallways dressed in their caps, gowns, honor cords, and other awards.

          


For many of the seniors, it was a homecoming, revisiting the schools they attended in earlier years. There were plenty of hugs from former teachers and administrators to go around for the soon-to-be-graduates!

For the elementary students, it was a glimpse into their own futures, a visual representation of a milestone they are all striving to reach: high school graduation.

This is a great reminder that each of us has someone, somewhere, watching us, looking up to us, and being inspired by our choices, attitudes, and accomplishments. It's a good reminder for us all, and it’s a great way to celebrate the Class of 2017!

At the end of the tour, the seniors gathered back at the high school for a group photo:
