students and principal with award certificate
The Kishwaukee Region of the Illinois Principals Association celebrated students and their families at the 16th Annual Student Leadership Breakfast.
 This year's event was held at the Raddisson in Rockford, Illinois on April 12.  Each principal throughout the region was invited to recognize a female and male student from the exiting grade level in his or her building. Parents of the students were also invited to attend.  Noella Bonsol and Carter Huff represented Washington Academy.

Each student leader received a certificate, a copy of a book on leadership appropriate for each age level, and a picture in honor of his/her recognition.
