The East Hampton High School Guidance and Counseling Department hosted the 14th annual Personal Best Awards Breakfast on May 5, honoring 30 students from the freshman class. These students were nominated by their teachers as having put their best foot forward this year. Teachers and faculty were asked to nominate one student whom they felt has shown their personal best throughout their ninth-grade year.  

“Personal best” refers to students who have set an example for their peers, demonstrated a high level of respect both in and out of the classroom, maintain a positive attitude, are highly motivated and hardworking, and are an overall asset to their classes. While traditional school awards are based on academics, sports, the fine arts, etc., this award is presented to those who possess a positive outlook on school and demonstrate outstanding character.

While the first year of high school is a difficult transition, these students have not only made the transition from middle school to high school look easy, but have done so with distinction. Congratulations again to our winners!
