A pair of Lawton High School (LHS) seniors were honored for their hard work and achievements in the classroom and in the community this week. Leonardo Hermosillo and Marc Spotts are two of 100 Oklahoma high school seniors named Academic All-State Scholars.
Through the Oklahoma Foundation for Excellence, the Academic All-State Award is one of the most prestigious student honors in Oklahoma, presented to outstanding public high school seniors in recognition of their academic achievement, leadership and community service.
This year’s All-Staters scored an average of 33 on the ACT, with six recipients scoring a perfect 36. The students’ average GPA was 4.25.
In addition, 29 of this year’s All-Staters are National Merit semifinalists, including Spotts.
Hermosillo and Spotts were the only two seniors from the Lawton Public School district honored with the award and joined a list of 28 Wolverines that have been selected through the extraordinarily high criteria. The last LHS student to receive the honor was Nathaniel Bowman in 2021 and the first was Kevin Keaveney in 1987.
For their recognition, both Hermosillo and Spotts will receive a $1,500 merit-based scholarship, honor cord, and a medallion. They will also be recognized at the Foundation’s 37th annual Academic Awards Celebration on Saturday, May 20th at the Cox Business Convention Center in Tulsa.
Congratulations to both Leonardo and Marc on their recognition!
