Houston High School Student Nominated for Triple A Award
Houston High School Student Nominated for Triple "A" Award
Mackenzie, a Houston High School senior, is Houston High School's nominee for the Academics, Arts, and Athletics Award (Triple "A" Award) program.
 
Kenzie has been an active member in Band, Volleyball, Basketball, and National Honor Society, to name a few, and it is an honor for her to have been nominated. She is the daughter of Chuck Ness and Kim Ness of Houston, and her future plans are to attend Winona State University for Nursing.

Triple "A" Award recipients are selected by a multi-level process involving the League's member schools and administrative regions.
Established in 1988, the Academics, Arts, and Athletics Award (Triple "A" Award) is sponsored by the Minnesota State High School League. The award goes to high school seniors who have a “B” or better grade point average and who participate in League-sponsored athletic and fine arts activities.

The purpose of the program is:
  • to recognize and honor high school seniors who have excelled in the classroom, on the athletic field, and in the fine arts.
  • to elevate academic standards and create greater awareness of League-sponsored activities and their values.
  • to provide member schools of the League with the opportunity to participate in a statewide program that supports, promotes, and recognizes academic and extra-curricular achievements.
The Minnesota State High School League describes the "ideal" Triple A student as one who has "achieved academic excellence and, at the same time, put forth the time and effort to participate in a League-sponsored athletic program and a fine arts activity."  
Congratulations Kenzie for this fine honor.
