Senior Awards Night

The senior class of 2010 was honored this past Wednesday May 19th during the annual Senior Awards Night.  Seniors who received awards in various areas along with their family members, attended the event which was held in the auditorium.  The night was sponsored by the Riverside Brookfield Board of Education and the RB Patron’s Council.

 Several different kinds of awards were given including general school awards, department awards, and Prairie State and Illinois Scholar Awards.  Students could receive honors or recognition in the four main subject areas as well as in technology and media, world languages, fine arts, and wellness.  Awards were also given for things like community service hours, the academic top 10% of the class and AP credit.  Students who received Student of the Month in the past four years were also recognized.

 The awards were announced by each department chair as well as several other administrators.  In between award announcements, various performances and presentations were given by seniors in fine arts and media.  Senior Madrigal Singers sang two pieces and the senior Orchesis dancers closed the ceremony with a performance titled “Our Last Dance.”  Senior Sarah Buksa also performed a piece on the clarinet and senior Bryan Smaller showed a video montage of many of the shows he produced on RBTV.

 After all of the individual awards were announced, each senior was called up to walk across the stage and receive their packet of awards.  Closing comments were then given by Interim Superintendent David Bonnette.  Following the ceremony, a reception for all of the students and their families was held in the Bulldog Inn.
