99% Award Winner
Northwest is pleased to honor Devin Onwugbufor as its 99% Award recipient.   Mrs. Burgett identified Devin as a student that comes to class every day with a smile on his face.  Devin is a member of AVID and is a member of the wrestling and football teams.  She says, “Devin is the type of young man that every teacher would want in their classroom.  I think Devin is deserving of the 99% award.”
In 2002, the Wichita Public Schools Board of Education initiated an awards program to recognize middle and high school students.  The Board of Education wanted to spotlight students who were doing everything right but were  often overlooked when it came to awards and accolades.    The 99% Awards Program allows each middle and high school to select one student per semester for recognition by the Board.  The selection criteria includes, but is not limited to: 
  • 90% attendance
  • Passing all courses enrolled in
  • Having no discipline referrals.
