WINTERSVILLE - Indian Creek High School began its 2013 awards season Thursday during the annual academic letter breakfast.
According to Jim Maul, school guidance counselor, the academic letter is a high honor to obtain.
"Students must complete three objectives in order to obtain this award," he explained. "They must accomplish a minimum of 45 hours of community service, they must maintain a cumulative grade-point average of 3.0 or higher or have been on the honor roll for the first two trimesters of the school year and they must present a letter of recommendation with their application."
