PLAQUEMINE - The Iberville Parish School System will honor 16 outstanding students from throughout the parish in the Student of the Year award ceremony on Wednesday, Jan. 30 at the Optional Education Center in Plaquemine.

Parents and community members are invited to attend the 5:30 p.m. ceremony and a reception immediately following.

During the ceremony, each student will be recognized and the District Students of the Year will be announced during the ceremony.

The program is designed to recognize outstanding elementary, middle/junior high and high school students. The awards for District Students of the Year have been judged by a panel of retired teachers from the district.

The honors program, patterned after the Louisiana Teacher of the Year Awards Program is an excellent opportunity to recognize those students who have demonstrated excellent academic achievement, leadership ability, and citizenship. This year's District winners advance to the Regional Student of the Year competition with interview competition scheduled later this spring.
