GREEN BAY – Some of the Best of the Class gathered in the Lambeau Field Atrium Wednesday to celebrate their accomplishments.
The soon-to-be high school graduates told us the experience is making a difference and motivating them for the future.
“I thought it was really great and an honor. Just to be here at Lambeau Field was really surprising, and I liked it,” said Warren Miller, Menominee Indian High School.
“It was a lot of fun. It is a lot of fun. And it’s really cool to be here at Lambeau Field,” said Hollie Phillips, Kewuanee High School.
There are 230 students taking part in this year’s Best of the Class. They represent about 100 different schools from all around Northeast Wisconsin.
Many of them credit their parents for keeping them on top of their classwork.
“My parents have always pushed me. It’s also a personal pride thing. It’s always been a part of who I am,” said Allison Berryman, Laconia High School.
“It’s more of being able to manage your time. You can’t go out and play. I have to get my homework done first,” said Cory Cotter, Pulaski High school.
The students also got to get in front of the camera to star in their own promo. The videos will be shown on television starting in June and will run until mid-July. And you might see some of our FOX 11 anchors appear in one or two.
“These kids are hard workers and they are very smart. And I believe they need this time to be recognized,” said Jay Zollar, vice president and general manager of WLUK FOX 11.
The graduates are grateful for this chance to enjoy their success. And some offered some words of wisdom for the younger students.
“Give yourself time to relax and have fun. High school is only four years, and it’s over. Appreciate your time here now.” said Angela Sun, Bay Port High School.
