  • AHS Student Selected as U.S. Senate Youth Delegate

    RPatel

    Avon High School Student Rushi Patel has been selected as one of only two students to represent Indiana as a delegate to the United States Senate Youth Program (USSYP). The program will be held in Washington, D.C. March 4 -11, 2017. In addition, Rushi will receive a $10,000 college scholarship!   

    The USSYP was founded in 1962 through Senate Resolution and each year two of the highest-achieving students from each state, the District of Columbia and the Department of Defense Education system overseas are selected through an extremely competitive merit-based selection process held at the state departments of education nationwide.

    “This is exciting news for Rushi and the entire AHS student body,” said AHS Principal Matt Shockley. “Rushi is a hard-working, diligent student and this exemplary recognition is a reflection of his work inside and outside of the classroom.”

    In March, Rushi will spend a week in Washington experiencing national government in action. He, along with other student delegates, will hear major policy addresses by senators, cabinet members, officials from the Departments of State and Defense and directors of other federal agencies, as well as participate in a meeting with a justice of the U.S. Supreme Court. 

    For more information about the USSYP, please visit www.ussenateyouth.org.

  • AHS Marching Black & Gold Win 2016 ISSMA Championship

    The Avon High School Marching Black and Gold won the 2016 ISSMA (Indiana State School Music Association) State Championship (Class A)! This is the 13th championship (13 state titles in 16 years) for AHS. The band is led by Director Jay Webb. He is now the winningest band director in Indiana’s 200-year history.

    “The Band program is a great deal of pride for the school & community,” said AHS Principal Matt Shockley. “Winning 13 straight championships doesn’t happen by accident. There is no group who works harder.”

    During the intense competition, ACSC Superintendent Dr. Maggie Hoernemann said she saw nothing but “beauty and competitive grace” from the students. “They make all of us better and I could not be more proud!”

    The ISSMA (Indiana State School Music Association) Marching Band State Finals were held at Lucas Oil Stadium in downtown Indianapolis. This event is the culmination of many weeks of marching band competitions across the state of Indiana, bringing together the top 10 bands across 4 classes (A, B, C, & D) chosen from the Top 10 in each class in Semi-State competition during the previous weekend. This event typically attracts more than 20,000 marching band fans from across the state throughout the day.
