Lindley and Harms

MADISON HIGH SCHOOL seniors Emerson Lindley (left) and Taylor Harms were recently named to the SDASSP/Daktronics Academic All-State Gold Team. Lindley and Harms are two of only ten students in the entire state to receive this honor.

It’s no secret that senior year is a busy, often stressful experience. Despite this, it’s still important to take the time to acknowledge students’ accomplishments, especially since the end of high school is such a key milestone in their young lives.

One of the ways seniors can earn extra recognition is through applying for South Dakota’s Academic All-State Team, which was created through a partnership between the South Dakota Association of Secondary School Principals (SDASSP) and Brookings-based company Daktronics to recognize displays of excellence from students.
