On Tuesday afternoon, students, parents, family members, campus and district administrators, school board members, and community partners gathered together to honor members of the Little Elm High School class of 2018 who have worked hard and have demonstrated outstanding academic achievement. As a class, this group of seniors has been accepted to over 75 different colleges and universities, such as MIT, Cornell University, University of California Berkley, New York University, University of Texas at Austin, Texas A&M University, Texas Tech University, and many more. They have been offered 100 scholarships worth over $4 million.
