Top Cape Ann students being feted by Chamber

The top-ranked high school seniors on the North Shore, including those from Gloucester High School, Rockport High and Manchester Essex Regional, will be honored for their academic achievements tonight when the North Shore Chamber of Commerce hosts its 45th annual Honor Scholars Recognition Dinner.

The dinner will recognize nearly 300 students from 33 public and private high schools on the North Shore, all of them ranked in the top 5 percent of their graduating class.

This year’s keynote speaker will be Tim Collins, president and founder of EBSCO Publishing.

Following dinner and the keynote address, students will be acknowledged individually and presented with awards in the presence of their parents, educators, chamber members and community leaders.

“The North Shore Chamber of Commerce believes recognizing those who excel helps to provide incentive for young people to work to their highest potential and strive to be our leaders of tomorrow,” said Chamber President Robert Bradford. “Without achieving excellence in our schools, we cannot expect excellence in our workforce. The chamber welcomes the opportunity to exhibit support for excellence in education on the North Shore.”

The tradition began in 1968, when the honorees were Beverly High School students, as the Chamber served only Beverly.

With the growth of the chamber, the dinner now accommodates an audience of more than 1,000 people and recognizes the top scholars from across the region.

The dinner will take place from 6 to 9 p.m. at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel in Danvers.
