Our Alumni Really Shine
At Scottsbluff Public Schools, we have been blessed with intelligent, hard working and motivated achievers inside and outside of the classroom. We have some still learning throughout our school district and some who have graduated and continue to make us proud. Some of our students continue to shine in our community while others have taken their talents outside of the panhandle. No matter what the circumstances are, our students are shining bright and it speaks volumes about our education here at SBPS.
We would like to recognize some current and former students on a job well done.
2011 graduate, Aubree Worden was named the 2010-11 Gatorade Nebraska Girls Cross Country Runner of the Year. Worden is the first Gatorade Nebraska Girls Cross Country Runner of the Year chosen from Scottsbluff High School. The award, which recognizes not only outstanding athletic excellence, but also high standards of academic achievement and exemplary character demonstrated on and off the racecourse, distinguished Worden as Nebraska’s best high school girls cross country runner. After receiving this honor today she is now a finalist for the prestigious Gatorade National Girls Cross Country Runner of the Year award. This is just one of my honors for Worden. She has been honored with many awards and recognized for many different achievements. Worden announced, she will be headed to Florida State University next year on a track and cross country scholarship.
2011 graduates Sara Frederick, Madelin Parsley and Karin Shedd have all been named 2011 National Merit Scholarship Finalists.
