Olivia Zajac, Preston Weber earn AAA honors

The AAA (Academics, Arts, Athletics) winners from Pierz are seniors Olivia Zajac and Preston Weber.

Zajac and Weber will represent Pierz at the District 19 AAA Banquet at the Holiday Inn in St. Cloud, Wednesday.

Triple “A” award recipients are selected through a multi-level process involving member schools of the Minnesota State High School League (MSHSL), the MSHSL’s administrative regions and a special committee of educators, business leaders and members from the fine arts and athletics communities.

To be eligible for the AAA award, a student must be a high school senior, have a cumulative grade-point average of 3.0 or higher at the date of nomination, participate in MSHSL-sponsored athletics and fine arts activities and comply with the MSHSL’s student code of conduct.

Nominations are limited to two qualifying students per school, one male and one female.
