Fairfield High School senior Hermela Gebremariam and Maharishi School senior Narayani Thijm were among the students recognized by Gov. Kim Reynolds and Lt. Gov. Adam Gregg for outstanding academic achievement at the 16th Annual Governor’s Scholar Recognition Ceremony April 29 at Hy-Vee Hall in Des Moines.

The statewide program, sponsored by the Iowa Governor’s Office, Iowa High School Athletic Association and its title sponsor the Iowa Farm Bureau Federation, honored 430 high school seniors from across the state.

Each high school in Iowa was invited to select a senior student with the highest academic ranking, based on grade-point average for their first seven semesters. Students selected for the award also had the opportunity to recognize their favorite or most influential teacher and will receive a photo plaque of their meeting with Reynolds and Gregg.

Ninety-nine percent of those recognized also participate in extracurricular school activities, with more than 85 percent participating in at least one interscholastic sport. More than 60 percent of the group plan to continue their education in Iowa.
