“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. NatStuCo 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 11 high schools in Colorado and 220 schools nationwide to be recognized as a Gold Council of Excellence.
To meet the requirements for the National Council of Excellence Award, a council must meet a variety of criteria. In addition to basic requirements such as a written constitution, regular meetings and a democratic election process, the councils have demonstrated successful sponsorship and participation in activities such as leadership development and service to the school and community. Councils awarded the gold level of the award have successfully demonstrated the highest levels of leadership.
We are so excited and honored to receive this award again! It took a lot of hard work and planning but it has been so worth it and we are proud to be recognized as a National Gold Council of Excellence.” commented Durango HS student body co president Carter Reiter.
