The top 5% academically in the senior, junior, and sophomore classes at Effingham High School and St. Anthony High School are recognized as members of the Society for Academic Achievement.

Typically, the honor is bestowed at a recognition banquet hosted by the Effingham Sunrise and Noon Rotary Clubs. Unfortunately, this year’s banquet was not able to be held.

Along with their congratulatory document, students received letters and certificates bearing the SAA seal. The SAA is dedicated to motivate each talented youth to achieve excellence and to secure a college education.

Each name is followed by the name of parents.
