Twenty-one Haywood High School students recently received High Schools That Work Awards of Educational Achievement. This accomplishment signifies their readiness for employment and postsecondary studies. The award is a way to let businesses, industries, colleges and universities know that these students have demonstrated the potential to succeed by meeting academic readiness goals on the HSTW assessment; completing a rigorous academic course of study in at least two of the following subject areas: English/language arts, mathematics and science; and completing a concentration in a career/technical field, mathematics/science or the humanities.
