Berkeley High School’s Student Recognition Awards

Mayor's Awards 2008

Each year I ask teachers and staff at Berkeley High School, B-Tech and Independent Study to nominate students for their extraordinary efforts.  With so many amazing youth in Berkeley’s public schools this event grows each year.  In the past four years we outgrew the DoubleTree Hotel at the Marina, and then Hs. Lordships.  This year we will honor over 225 high school students and thanks to the generous co-sponsorship of UC Berkeley, we are hosting the event in the Pauley Ballroom on campus on June 4.
