The auditorium at Port St. Joe Elementary School was quiet with hushed anticipation as Principal Sue Gannon took the stage.

Backed by members of the Gulf County School Board, Gannon told the room of students, which consisted of students in grades three through five that they were gathered to recognize those who received high scores on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test proctored during the last school year.

As the 42 awards were handed out, students took the stage to the loud recognition of their peers, parents, teachers and school board.

“The kids are successful because you push them at home,” said Gannon to the parents in attendance. “We feel fortunate to have kids who are succeeding.”

To the rest of the students, Gannon encouraged them to work hard throughout the school year and she hoped to see them on stage at the next award ceremony.

Students who achieved perfect scores in math included Henry Balogh and Jade Cothran.

Perfect scores in math and s level five score in reading went to Michael Miniat and Megan Saleh.
