Mark Schlichting, a West business teacher, received the Governor’s Scholar Recognition Award. This award is issued to teachers that have gone above and beyond. This recognition is initiated by a student. This is definitely top shelf.
West High School grads got to “walk the halls” of their former elementary schools (Buchanan, Buffalo, Hayes, and Wilson). Graduates, elementary staff, parents, and elementary students celebrated the Class of 2017’s accomplishments with high fives, smiles, applause, cheering and tears of JOY. WAY to GO, Falcons. These young adults visited their elementary schools on their day off to celebrate and encourage our Davenport youth to work hard, never give up, and work toward GRADUATION.
Junior Michael Davis was accepted into the University of Iowa’s prestigious International Writing Program for the summer residency, Between the Lines Identity & Belonging, this July! This is quite the honor for Davis, an editor for the Beak ‘n’ Eye and a passionate, articulate, and innovative writer. https://iwp.uiowa.edu/programs/between-the-lines/2017-between-the-lines
