As the 2012-2013 school year comes to a close, awards are presented, scholarships are awarded and diplomas are received. For one Adrian High School senior, an academic, statewide honor has been achieved. Out of 70,000 seniors in the State of Missouri, the top 100 scholars were recognized at a “Celebration of Learning” luncheon in Columbia last weekend. Austin Pitts represented AHS as one of the honored seniors. “This is a great honor for one of Adrian’s students to receive this award. Austin is very deserving of the award.
Three Adrian 7th graders participated in the ACT program for 7th grade students through the Duke University Talent Identification Program (TIP). The students are: Trenton Bagby, Nicholas Preston and Robert Reese. Eligible 7th grade students may register to take the ACT during December or February.
Robert and Trenton have qualified for TIP’s State Recognition Ceremony based upon their ACT scores. They are invited to attend the 2013 State Recognition Ceremonies at the Drury University campus in Springfield, MO.

The Stock Market Game™ program was implemented in 1977 to allow students to experience the realities of investing. Students research and evaluate stocks, and make decisions based on what they have learned. Teams trade common stocks and mutual funds from the NYSE and NASDAQ exchanges, earn interest on cash balances, pay interest if buying on margin, and pay a commission on all trades. To determine why certain stocks perform a particular way or why the broader market has moved up or down, they need to understand how the economy works and to calculate their returns they need to do the math.
