Examples in Excellence tenth year of students recognized

Dr. Michael Shibler was the first of many speakers during the tenth annual Examples in Excellence, Rockford Students Making a Difference ceremony Monday, February 28 at the district administration building. Shibler called Examples a highlight of the school year.

The program is a joint effort by the district, Douglas Photography and The Rockford Squire newspaper to recognize students for the difference they make in the lives of those around them. Each school in the district annually chooses one student for their strength of character and each principal describes that student before a crowd of family members, friends and the entire school board. This year’s Example in Excellence is available at the Squire, Douglas Photography and at the RPS administration building. Student biographies and photos will also be published in the coming editions of the Squire. Congratulations to each of the fine young men and women who were honored.
