McIntosh Academic Boosters honor high achievers

McIntosh High School students who have demonstrated high academic achievement were honored recently by the school's Academic Booster Club, an organization that is unique among area high schools.

Students who earned grade point averages of 93 or above during the spring semester were treated to a catered luncheon at Holy Trinity Catholic Church, next to the school. Those who earned between 90 and 93 enjoyed an ice cream social at the high school, and all students who earned grade point averages of 85 or above received "goody bags" filled with candy, coupons from local vendors and other treats.

The Academic Booster luncheons each fall and spring are designed to recognize the academic achievements of McIntosh students. Luncheon entrees are donated by local businesses, and parents supply a variety of desserts. Businesses that provided food for the fall luncheon and ice cream social include Arby's, Chick-fil-A, CiCi's Pizza, Fuddruckers, Harry's in a Hurry, Kroger, Partners II Pizza, Pizza Hut, Publix, Schlotzsky's Deli, Subway, Taco Bell and Wendy's.

The Academic Booster Club also awards academic letters to students who maintain grade point averages of 90 or above, offers financial support to academic clubs at the school, and hosts two staff appreciation luncheons each year.
