The 66th Scholastic Achievement Ceremony on May 16 was a celebration of the culmination of academic achievement, athletic accomplishment and philanthropy shown the past four years by Fridley High School seniors. Sponsored by the Fridley Lions, students, families and donors were treated to a banquet dinner before the awards ceremony began. 

The Fridley community's generous support was clearly visible throughout the ceremony. The Fridley Schools Foundation and their donors handed out scholarships totalling more than $160,000 to students.
