May is regularly a time of celebration at University High School. We celebrate our graduating class. We celebrate the teachers who are retiring or leaving. And we celebrate the conclusion of another great school year.

In 2020, many of these celebrations were held virtually. Awards that are typically presented at Academic Recognition Night or Prize Day were presented by video or email.

Below, we’ve rounded up all of the awards and accolades that were presented in May 2020 for our upperclassmen (mostly seniors). Please join us in congratulating these exceptional students!
