“Receiving an NASC National Gold Council of Excellence Award reflects the highest dedication on the part of the school to providing a well-rounded, student leadership program,” said Ann Postlewaite, National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP) student programs director. NASC applauds the work of National Gold Councils of Excellence and challenges them to continue their leadership and service to their school and communities.” Durango HS was one of 10 Colorado high schools and 220 schools nationwide to be recognized as a national Gold Council of Excellence.
“Being recognized as a Gold Council of Excellence is a huge honor and we are so thankful to have been awarded it for the 9th year in a row. We wouldn’t have been able to do it without the support of our school and all the hard working people in student council. It’s nice to know that all our hard work reflects positively on our school and community and that it makes a difference.’ said DHS student body co-president Emma Hackett.
