It takes hard work and dedication to graduate at the top of your high school class — whether you end up in the top 10 among 90 classmates or the top 35 among 350. Today we salute the hundreds of students who accomplished that rank in St. Paul and other east metro schools. This annual project invites schools to send us a list of their “Top Graduates,” however they define them. Some schools designate the traditional valedictorian and salutatorian, others define a Top 10, and some recognize a long list of students who have achieved honors status. Our 2019 compilation shows students headed to colleges from coast to coast — from Bowdoin College in Brunswick, Maine, to the University of California Berkeley.

A “What if” idea hatched by a West Middle School teacher and his students in November has become a “Whoa, this is going to happen” scenario.“We were ecstatic,” math teacher Phil Hutcherson said of his students when they learned Monday that their proposed project is the Colorado winner in the Samsung “Solve for Tomorrow Contest.”The concept — to develop an interactive communications board for people who are homeless or verging on homelessness — was selected from thousands of entries statewide, according to Samsung.The multilingual kiosk will be set up in front of soup kitchens and similar agencies to help people access food, shelter, self-care, health and job training services.The device, likely a touch screen with graphics and words, will advise how to get started to obtain help, hours of agencies and what services they offer, best walking and bus routes to the agencies and other information that homeless people … [Read more...] about Colorado Springs school wins big prize for idea to help homeless people
