Rutherford Student Government Association Receives Medallion Award

The Rutherford High School Student Government Association was recently named a Bronze Medallion Council at the Florida Association of Student Councils Convention held in Gainesville, Fla. Panama City student officers Paula Nguyen, Josiah Ramirez, Trisha Casey, Robyn Moore, Katelyn Doud and Justin Grimes, all shared in the honor.

Medallion Awards are presented based on the performance of the school's student council. Student Council officers were required to compile a book that consisted of agendas and minutes from meetings, project report forms for completed activities, the councilís constitution, and a list of student council activities at the district and state levels. Student councils are awarded points based on each of these items and must earn a minimum number of points based on the size of the school to be named a Medallion Council.
