Because of Covid-19 and mandated distancing policies, many traditional ceremonies and activities have been cancelled across the nation. One such tradition at Bertrand High School was started in 2008 with Dr. Dennis Shipp. Dr. Shipp believes that academic excellence is of utmost importance and that the hard work and achievement of the students at Bertrand High School should be recognized. Upon his arrival as Superintendent of Bertrand Community School, he established the Academic Banquet. This banquet honors those students who demonstrate academic excellence in the classroom based on their GPA. On his departure from Bertrand, Dr. Shipp wanted to reach out one more time to publicly give recognition to those high achieving students and all that they have accomplished.
Please take time to watch the video posted below and help Dr. Shipp honor those students who have worked extremely hard to earn academic excellence.
