Homer Junior High recognizes student achievement, accomplishments
Homer Junior High students, staff and parents have a lot to be proud of — both academically and athletically.
On Wednesday (April 20), the school recognized students for their achievements in the classrooms, on the athletic fields and in the field of art and music during a school assembly.

“We want to acknowledge the great things going on here at Homer Junior High,” said Principal Troy Mitchell, who provided students and staff with a “small snapshot” of accomplishments.
Among those recognized were the school’s Geography Bee Winner, History Club state qualifier, Spelling Bee winner, Carnegie Hall performers and student athletes who qualified for state.
Also honored were the school’s mission statement contest winner, its Division I Show Choir, Illinois Music Education Association (ILMEA) qualifiers, Reader Leaders and Math March Madness Champions.
Will County Regional Superintendent Shawn Walsh joined the celebration and congratulated all of the students for their achievements — especially the school’s Spelling Bee winner who won the Will County Spelling Bee and is headed to Washington, D.C. this May to compete in the Scripps National Spelling Bee.
It’s the third time in four years that a Homer Junior High student has won the Will County Bee.
