Students honored for academic achievement

WATERLOO (KWWL) -- Some local high school students are lettering, not in a sport, but academics.

Wednesday more than 400 kids were recognized at Waterloo's West High School for maintaining 3 point or higher grade point averages.  

KWWL's Tara Thomas spoke to the academic letter winners and the entire student body as part of the assembly. Administrators wanted to highlight classroom achievement.

"We're really proud of this event, said Dr. Gail Moon, West High's principal.  "It's the first time we've held it with the entire student body. It's usually been an evening event but we wanted to make this something very much a ceremony to recognize the achievement and get acknowledgement to these students."
