LINCOLN — Nearly two dozen Cheyenne County high school students were recognized recently as earning Academic All-State honors for the fall season by the Nebraska School Activities Association (NSAA).
Since 2006, the NSAA’s awards program — presented in conjunction with the Nebraska Chiropractic Physicians Association (NCPA) — has recognized students who meet the criteria for nomination (individual academic excellence, leadership and significant contributions in their NSAA activity) by their school in the season of their respective activity.
No fewer than a dozen Sidney High School students were awarded.
