Harlingen High School South recognized with Excellence Award

HARLINGEN — They spent the past year promoting school spirit, raising money for the American Cancer Society and bolstering autism awareness.

Now the student council at Harlingen High School South has been recognized for its efforts.

The National Association of Student Councils has awarded the council the 2016 NASC National Gold Council of Excellence Award. The award is presented to those councils which demonstrate the highest levels of leadership as well as meet additional standards set by NASC, says its website.

Claudia Rogers, student council sponsor, said she was very proud of the students. Ever since she began working with the student council seven years ago, she’s been trying to help the students win the award — no easy task.

“It’s not easy getting the award,” she said. “We have been working hard for recognition. It’s a great accomplishment.”
