The Lukancic Middle School staff was recently asked to nominate students for the Lukancic “Torch of Excellence Awards”. The criteria for nominations were students who demonstrate academic excellence, academic growth, or outstanding leadership.
The nominees gathered on Wed. Jan. 15 to share a breakfast with their families in the gym. Lukancic 7th grader Max Venegas is an outstanding representative of the students given the Torch of Excellence. Outside of class, Max’s interests are baseball and wrestling. Inside the classroom, his favorites are math and science.
