The show must go on, and that it did as Badin High School hosted its annual Academic Awards Night on Tuesday, May 18, in the school’s Mulcahey Gym. Some adjustments were made due to the pandemic, but dozens of students were honored at the celebration of success.
“This is an important event to recognize the accomplishments of our students,” Badin High Principal Brian Pendergest said. “They have done a tremendous job through a difficult year, and we were especially glad to honor their efforts.”

Students in the Badin High School Class of 2021 set a school record with more than $35.3 million in academic scholarship dollars. They were recognized during the school’s 14th annual Academic Signing Day on Wednesday, May 19.
“It’s been an unusual year,” Badin Principal Brian Pendergest said, referring to the pandemic, “and the fact that our students persevered to such a great extent is underlined by this outstanding total of academic money. They will use it to move forward with great success into their futures beyond Badin High School.”
A total of 85 students in the graduating class of 157 members eclipsed the $100,000 mark, and 23 more earned scholarship dollars that did not rise to that six-figure level. The $35.3 million easily surpassed the previous record total of $25.6 million earned by the Class of 2016. The Class of 2020 received some $17.8 million in academic offers.
