Grandville High School Robotics Team Awards 2013 Varsity Letters

Grandville, MI (PRWEB) May 31, 2013

Not all Varsity letters are created equal. While most sports teams at Grandville High school award letters, few students work as hard for those letters as the members of the school’s robotics team. These students put more than 1,000 hours into multiple robotics competitions over the course of the school year. Unlike any high school sports team, the Grandville High School RoboDawgs start their season in August and the team is active all the way into June of the following year.

This is the third year that the Robodawgs have awarded Varsity letters, and the team had a record number of letter recipients. Thirty-nine Grandville High School Students earned a Varsity letter this year.

At their May awards dinner, the RoboDawgs also recognized several students and adults for outstanding accomplishments during the 2012-2013 school year. Awards given out, together with the recipients of each, are as follows:
