Central High School sophomore, Nate Handley, was named the 2019 recipient of the American History Award presented by the Woodmen of the World.
Woodmen of the World is one of the largest fraternal orders in America today. The student selected for the honor must have a proficiency in American History. The Woodmen of the World organization encourages the study of our country’s history by challenging students to make their best grades and demonstrate outstanding performance in American history.
Nate has demonstrated both love of country and community as a student at Central High School. Josh Smith, Nate’s Advanced Placement U.S. History teacher said, “Nate is the highest achiever in U.S. History at Central High School, not only in test scores, but more importantly in character and in demonstrating a hunger for knowledge.” Central High School Principal, Mr. Jared Griffis stated, “Nate embodies what a premier student is all about. He is extremely smart, works incredibly hard, and is enthusiastic about learning. We are proud of him and glad he is part of our Lion family.”
