Tomahawk High School introduces Distinguished Alumni AwardSubmitted: 01/09/2013

TOMAHAWK - Star athletes and state championship teams often get plenty of recognition at Northwoods high schools.

But Tomahawk wants to make sure alumni who do great things are awarded, too.

That's why the district is introducing the Distinguished Alumni Award. Superintendent Roger Rindo thinks it'll take off quickly.

"We have graduates across the state and across the country that have gone on to do great things in their communities and in their careers and in the lives of others," Rindo said. "I expect that we're going to have people coming out of the woodwork to recognize those individuals."

Tomahawk will recognize one alum each year with the award.

Rindo hopes successful alumni will serve as an example for current Tomahawk students.

"We also want to hold them up as role models," Rindo said. "It's really important for our kids to know that because you come from a smaller town doesn't limit your possibilities in any way and we have graduates who have gone on and done great things, so they'll be great representatives for that."

To be eligible, nominees must have graduated from Tomahawk at least 15 years ago.
