Baldwin Park High School students were recently celebrated for academic excellence during a Renaissance Recognition Ceremony, featuring a carnival-themed event that included games, a photo booth and refreshments.
The Renaissance program is a student-led organization that recognizes peers for educational achievements, behavior, citizenship and personal endeavors.
More than 80 families, as well as the Mayor of Baldwin Park Emmanuel J. Estrada, were in attendance at the event in mid-April to cheer on their hardworking Braves, with students recognized for their high grades and involvement in extracurricular activities.
“This was a really fun event to be a part of because it’s great when we can celebrate our fellow classmates,” Baldwin Park High School senior and Renaissance student Kent Romo said.
Romo served as a master of ceremonies for the night, alongside BPHS senior Daisy Martinez.
Awards and goodie bags were given to students who earned spots on the school’s Honor Roll, Principal Honor Roll and Braves Scholar list. In total, 26 freshmen, 19 sophomores, 33 juniors and 37 seniors received awards.
The BPHS Entertainment Corps performed atmospheric numbers during intermission, and the event concluded with a special performance by BPHS student and singer Vanessa Polk.
