BHS Academic Boosters Club hosts Sweet Rewards


Academic success led to sweet treats for hundreds of Bellefontaine High School students this month.

BHS hosted its annual Sweet Rewards ceremony in the main gym on Friday.

The Bellefontaine High School Academic Boosters Club recognized freshmen, sophomores, juniors, and seniors for earning a 3.0-grade point average or higher in the first semester.

386 students were honored with sweet rewards, including donuts, cookies, milk, and water.

BHS students then played The Price is Right in their quest to take home prizes.

30 prizes worth over a combined $200 were given away.


More than $400 in cash was handed out to students.

Several community members and businesses donated gift cards.

BHS Principal Jason Brown, BHS Assistant Principal Cliff Core, and BCS Gifted Coordinator Angie Horvath emceed Sweet Rewards.

Brown praised the students for their commitment to academic excellence, which is one of the three pillars at BHS.

He then gave an inspirational speech, detailing how gratefulness is the first step to happiness.


Four moms from the Academic Boosters Club served as the chairpersons of the event.

Horvath reflected on the ceremony. “The entire focus of the Academic Boosters Club is to enhance academics and honor kids who make academics a priority.”

The spring awards ceremony will be held on April 28th in the high school auditorium.
