Graduate Awards

Nelson’s graduates of 2022 have a lot to be proud of. They have been resilient and graduated high school with incredible success. The new format in celebrating our graduates has allowed us to acknowledge all graduates at commencement, and hold a separate awards presentation.

Our graduate award winners are amazing students and people who have demonstrated commitment and tenacity to their studies and the school community. We are very proud and excited to present over 40 students from all educational pathways with awards whose combined total exceeds over $38,000.00. The administration and staff of Nelson High School could not be more proud of all our graduates.

The awards presentation is posted below.

Our gratitude goes out to our generous community donors and their ongoing support of Nelson High School.
