  • The Second Annual Hoover High School Summa Celebration, recognizing,seniors with a cumulative GPA of 4.325 or higher, was held on Tuesday, March 20 at the Lodge at Fieldcrest in North Canton.
    The school district uses a fixed GPA for honors designation because often only a fraction of a point separates the top achievers.
    There were 53 students who earned the summa designation. The dessert buffet and celebration was sponsored by the Hoover Sideliners, with support from Attorney Gerald L. Baker.
    Gretchen Leckie-Ewing headed the committee that organized the event.Other committee members included Melody Brown, Laura Heckathorn, Lindsay Johnson, Nicole Makowski, Wrenn Nicodemo, Flo Rankin, Barbara Tarantino, Christopher Triner and Tiffany Walker.
    Each Summa honoree chose two educators to recognize at the event.
    S u p e r i n tendent Michael Gallina opened the evening with a challenge to the students: “Be significant in someone nelse’s life.”
    Students had the opportunity to take the stage to thank parents for support, and describe how their honored educators impacted their lives.
    In closing, Principal Anthony Pallija praised the students’ accomplishments and thanked the honored educators for “going the extra mile for our kids.”
