The New Palestine High School Academic “A” Banquet took place on November 7, honoring the juniors and seniors who have maintained a grade point average of 3.7 or higher.

NPHS holds a banquet at the Primo Banquet Hall and Conference Center every year to recognize students for their achievements and to encourage them to continue working hard throughout the remainder of their high school careers.

NPHS junior Luke Gohmann attended the banquet for his second time.

“It’s the greatest honor to a man of my stature to be given the opportunity to attend such a banquet. I’m thankful and honored,” Gohmann said.

“I feel honored because it’s nice to see my hard work over these high school years being recognized,” NPHS senior Kimmy Ingold said.

Despite how honorable it is to have one’s achievements recognized, the food seemed to be the highlight of the evening. Junior Evan Shaw, who also made an appearance at this year’s banquet, was a huge fan of the spread of chicken, pasta, potatoes, salad, and many more foods.

“I did like the rolls. That was probably my favorite part,” Shaw said.

Gohmann and Ingold agree, the gourmet meal was truly memorable.

“The food was really tasty just like it had been in the previous years. The best part is the cheesy mashed potatoes,” Ingold said.

“The food was exquisite in every aspect,” Gohmann said. “It tasted incredible.”

Both juniors are excited to go again next year to receive their senior year achievement plaques. Gohmann says he is counting down the days.

“364,” Gohmann said.
