Hard-working students at Lakeridge and Lake Oswego junior high schools are honored for their academic accomplishments with awards at the close of every school year.
These awards recognize students' achievements in academics, extracurricular involvement, community service, athletics and the arts.
Because of space constraints, The Review can only run one school's honors at a time, so at the flip of a coin, we started with Lakeridge Junior High School in the June 22 edition of The Review. In this week's edition, we are featuring the LOJ winners.
Suzanne Schmidt, is the eighth-grade counselor this year, because counselors follow a cohort of students.
She says she has loved her years with these students and families.
"They are a kind, thoughtful cohort," Schmidt says. "They work hard in so many ways … leading our architecture team to a national award, being awarded 'best in show' in their art, working for social justice through cultural awareness. They work hard academically, socially, creatively, athletically and personally. I am excited to watch them blossom as they move through high school and beyond. We have an amazingly dedicated group of students."
These are the names of LOJ Sailors who received awards earlier this month:
