Each year KWCH 12 hosts the Top of the Class appreciation breakfast. The event honors the top graduating seniors at high schools across central Kansas, recognized for both their academic achievements as well as extra-curricular activities.
High school counselors are asked to pick a student to represent their school. In addition to looking at the student's G.P.A., they are also asked to take into account awards, honor classes, clubs and sport involvement.
This year’s KWCH 12 Top of the Class ceremony took place downtown at Candela at the Lux. It began with a breakfast and wrapped up with a commercial taping of each graduating senior.
The commercials featuring the Top of the Class students will air throughout the summer on KWCH 12, KSCW (channel 33/cable 5) and Always On 12.2. Students biographies and pictures will also be featured online at kwch.com.
