An evening of special recognition was the highlight of the Carrollton Board of Education meeting Tuesday, which included honoring eight Carrollton High School seniors who are this year's inductees into a unique class of CHS alumni. 

Since the Class of 2007, Carrollton High School has annually identified seniors who represent the “Three A’s,” a designation honoring personal achievements in Academics, Arts and Athletics. Part of this recognition pays tribute to the students’ abilities to balance all three, a testament to their perseverance and character, said CHS Principal Ian Lyle. 

“It is an achievement to excel in any of these areas,” said Lyle. “When considering the demands to be exceptional in all three, you come to appreciate how well-rounded and dedicated these students are.”

More than 60 CHS alumni have been honored with this award. The work ethic those students have exhibited over the years has translated into their adult lives, too, starting with successful college careers and later the transition to their professional lives.
