The Shawano Optimist Club held their 32nd annual Scholastic Awards Banquet at the Shawano Community High School. Overall 139 students were awarded certificates and 22 students were recognized as receiving the certificate four years in a row. Those students were also eligible for the student of the year plaque. The students as a prerequisite to the certificates had to achieve a certain grade level among their peers that level is set by the Shawano Community High School staff and administration. Once that list is set the Shawano Optimist Club goes into action to get the ball rolling in other aspects of the program.
