Windsor High School recently announced its three class scholars for the school's 2012 graduating class.
Leading the group is valedictorian Michael Bond, whose list of accomplishments over the past four years is lengthy, to put it lightly.
Academically, Bond excelled across the board, receiving both the Excellence in English and Excellence in History awards on his way to earning an induction into the high school's chapter of the National Honor Society.
He was also selected as a Governor's Scholar of Connecticut, and scored perfect sores on his statistics and English AP exams.
As any top student should, Bond also excelled outside of the classroom, serving as the school newspaper's editor-in-chief, and volunteering his time to help a number of organizations, including UNICEF and Connecticut Children's Medical Center.
Bond is joined by Joseph Phelps and Holly Loomer, who have earned salutatorian and class scholar distinctions, respectively.
Phelps exelled in the classroom and on Windsor High's athletic fields since his early days at the high school. He has been on the high honor roll ever quarter since middle school in 2006 while playing on the varsity swimming and baseball teams since his sophomore year. Phelps was a baseball captain and all-conference player in 2012, but his talents also extended to the bowling lanes — the National Honor Society student is the City Tournament champion for two-years running.
Loomer has made her mark at the high school as well. She's earned a spot on the high honor roll each year since her freshman year, was a finalist in the National History Day Competition, is a member of the National and Spanish National Honor Societies and was a star on the athletic fields and in the band room.
Loomer payed on the varsity field hockey and varsity lacrosse teams since her freshman year. She also served as first chair clarinet in the symphonic band, drum major in the marching band and lead alto saxophone in the jazz ensemble.
Her volunteer experience includes supporting the Komen Race for the Cure and playing music for seniors.
All three scholars will lead their class in its graduation ceremony Monday night at The Bushnell.
