Columbus school holds awards ceremony for students

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - As the school year wraps up, students at Rothschild Leadership Academy are being recognized for their success.

An awards ceremony was held for sixth grade students Tuesday. Awards were handed out for art, band, technology, honor roll and perfect attendance among other subjects.

"Idea is to basically accentuate positive behavior and so this is a way of recognizing and honoring those students who have exemplified positive behavior, not only athletically but also academically as well," Michael Forte said, Principal of Rothschild Leadership Academy.

Ceremonies for seventh and eighth grade students will be held Wednesday and Thursday.

Parents are not only welcomed to attend, but they are encouraged to be there for the children.
