  1. Very odd that omitted from the list of honors reported by Bear65 is the valedictorian and recipient of the overall math, overall science, music, presidential award and one other. His name is JOSH ENGEL. Also missing is Matthew Keegan who I believe won the most improved writing award. Seems a bit more fact checking might be in order for such an important post.

    • I apologize; I was aware that Josh received many of the most prestigious awards. BearSportsNews is a place to report Bears who play sports and I did not remember that your son played tennis. I attended both ceremonies, as a volunteer, and was not able to get every one who was honored.

      I am sorry, but I am the writer, editor and publisher. As such, I repeatedly state that I am fallible and that I welcome corrections which I have been entered. In fact this specific list began with the following note”(Apologies for the less than complete list; some of those handing out the awards spoke faster than the ability to record them; SORRY)”

      This is merely an amateur, volunteer blog and unfortunately I could not find any readily available resource to check the check. .

      I,too, had two sons who graduated from Landon and Duke; so I understand your pride.

      I hope that you can forgive me.
