Cross County High School has been named a finalist for the Founder’s Award from the National Institute for Excellence in Teaching.
“We raised our test scores last year on the ACT,” said Morris. “Not just there but across the board in all tested areas in our high school, and we even raised our reading percentage by over eleven percent.”
The school is one of five finalists and received ten thousand dollars as a reward. The winner of the award will be announced Thursday, March 10th, and will receive the grand prize of fifty thousand dollars.
