Students earn Mark Awards

A special evening was held for all eighth grade students at Trinity Lutheran School in Waconia on Thursday, May 31 – but it was particularly special for three students that received special honors.

Megan Rooke, Eric Telford, and Brandon Holmes all received prestigious Mark Awards. The Trinity Mark Award of Merit was first inaugurated in 1955 by Mr. Mark to recognize students for their high scholastic achievement and character. This annual scholarship award has been presented to Trinity Lutheran School recipients over the past 56 years.

The 2012 Mark Award of Merit for Academic Achievement was awarded to Megan Rooke and Eric Telford. The 2012 Mark Award for Christian Leadership, for demonstration of Christ’s love in leadership, character, and service went to Megan Rooke and Brandon Holmes.

Officials at Trinity are proud of the Mark Award recipients and the academic achievements of the entire graduating 8th grade class of 2012.
