The Parkwood Middle School Renaissance Program celebrates the academic and behavioral achievement of its diverse student body. To qualify, students must maintain a "B" average and not have any major disciplinary actions on file. In the coming weeks, we will be spotlighting a few Renaissance Award winners and trying to figure out how these excellent students are so successful. The next interview in our series is with 7th grader Lila Reeves. Special thank you to Parkwood Press member Caroline Bidwell for submitting this excellent article for our website.
