Cum Laude International Honor Society Recipients Announced! Wheeler has been a chapter member of this academic honor society since 1982. Congrats to this year’s honorees and to Performing Arts Department member Kristin Sprague for our keynote address.
This (Cum Laude Society) assembly is intended to recognize the achievements of a specific group of juniors and seniors who have excelled academically here at Wheeler. They have demonstrated respect and enjoyment for learning and good follow-through. They have made their classrooms more interesting by the types of questions they ask. They look beyond the surface of ideas to “why” and “how;” they want to understand. In addition, they have developed a passion and this area of interest makes a difference to them — whether that is French literature or drawing or AP Bio or Jazz performance. They have challenged themselves, and they have chosen courses not necessarily because they assumed they would get a good grade in it or because it looked good on a transcript, but because it stretched their ability to think and respond. However, to a greater degree, we want to recognize all students who work toward academic excellence, who enjoy learning and who believe that having a vital intellectual life makes a difference. Although the students we honor today are representative of this academic excellence, this spirit lies within all of us. As we honor the new inductees, we also want to recognize this spirit of excellence which we all share.
