Upcoming Events
Congratulations to our students who were recognized as GEMs at a recent School Board meeting.  These students demonstrated Great Educational Moments (GEM) and were awarded a certificate and pin in honor of their hard work.  Mrs. Terri Axford, Supt. Mark Porter and Board Chairman John Dick were on hand to congratulate Brian Coward for being named a National Merit Finalist, putting him in the top 1% of all of those whose test score qualifies them as a National Merit Scholar. Also receiving reconition was Leila Nolan for her award winning STEM entry in the district science fair.  Also recognized but not in attendance were Mason Cooper and Amy Athans for their District Level STEM projects.
Key West High School is proud to announce that Brian Coward has been named a Finalist in the National Merit Scholarship Program, an elite honor that was earned by demonstrating, through distinguished performance, high potential for future academic accomplishments.   Brian is an exceptional student beyond his brilliant educational record, numerous achievements and aspirations to pursue engineering at an elite school.  He is involved in many activities in the school and community, has taken on various leadership roles and has participated in many extraordinary opportunities such a traveling to different parts of the world to help struggling communities and participating in the U.S. Naval Academy Summer STEM Program.  In addition
to his scholarly achievements, Brian is an accomplished athlete as a four year varsity soccer player, a dedicated volunteer, and a natural leader who has earned the respect of peers and faculty alike, earning him recognition by his senior class as the Best All-Around student as well as school-level Conch Pride Awards, and nomination and participation in the National Youth Leadership Seminar in 2013 and the University of Florida Youth Leadership Conference in 2015.  In the Fall 2015, Brian was selected as KWHS’s Sunshine State Scholar for his academic accomplishments and career potential in the STEM field. Later that academic year, Brian was selected as MCSD’s Sunshine State Scholar and traveled to the state capital to be recognized for this distinction amongst other outstanding scholars in Florida. Brian is polite, respectful and has an unassuming confidence that has grown throughout the years as he has taken on and accomplished challenges and goals.  We are proud of Brian’s deserving status as a National Merit Finalist and join in celebrating this high honor with his parents, Tom and Nancy Coward.  
Congratulations to Peterly Louis who was recognized by the Office of the Governor for his participation in the Black History Month Essay contest!   His excellent work earned him a letter from the Governor and we are proud of his accomplishment.
