Cooper High Distinguished Alumni Committee seeks nominations
Robbinsdale Cooper High School is pleased to announce they are seeking nominations for the Cooper Honor Roll. The last person to be inducted into the Honor Roll was Ert Jones-Hermerding in April of 2012 as part of a students International Baccalaureate Personal Project.
The purpose of the Robbinsdale Cooper High School Distinguished Hawk award is to recognize individuals who have made exceptional achievements in their field, significant contributions to Cooper High School and/or unique contributions to their community on a local, state, national, or international level. Nominees can be former students, staff, coaches, and community members who support Cooper High School. Full nominee details can be found on the nomination form.
The selection of these individuals is intended to recognize and encourage a tradition of being a HAWK: Honesty, Accountability, Work Ethic, and Kindness to Robbinsdale Cooper High School. Honorees should serve as both examples of the quality education that the school provides and as role models for current students and staff to achieve success.
Cooper will induct 3-5 members of the Cooper High School community into the Distinguished Hawk Honor Roll. These inductees will be recognized at an annual banquet. The hallway in the Cooper High School front vestibule above the doors of the auditorium displays past Distinguished Hawk Award recipients and will display the newest members of the Honor Roll this fall.
