Flyway Top Ten 2020-21

Wisconsin Flyway Conference Academic Top Ten

Each year the Wisconsin Flyway Conference recognizes each member school’s top ten academically achieving students in the graduating class. 

This year, due to COVID safety measures, each school held its own ceremony. Mayville celebrated on Tuesday, February 23rd in the MHS auditorium. 

Sponsored by National Exchange Bank and Trust, Chief Operating Officer Jim Chatterton spoke to students and congratulated them along with Scott Sabol, District Administrator. 

Each student was presented his or her plaque and a lanyard from their intended school of higher education by a faculty member of their choosing. Allowing our students to nominate staff in this manner is a way to recognize the efforts and influence that these educators have on our students, as well as to acknowledge the engagement and relationships that exist. 

This group of students represents a diverse set of next steps after high school. The wide array of universities includes:

  • UW Madison

  • UW Whitewater

  • Drake University

  • Brigham Young University-Idaho

  • Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design

  • UW Lacrosse

  • Northern Michigan University

  • UW Stout

  • Undecided

Likewise, the wide array of majors and areas of study vary greatly and include:

  • Computer Science-Cyber Security

  • Biomedical Engineering

  • Piano Performance

  • Graphic Design-Interactive Media

  • FIne Arts-New Studio Practice

  • Human Resources Management

  • Nursing

  • Biology-Pre Med

  • Psychology

  • Biology-Physical Therapy

  • Therapeutic Recreation

“This group of young people have demonstrated the resilience, determination, effort, and enthusiasm for learning, especially in these ever-challenging times,” said Lee Zarnott, MHS Principal. “This is indicative of what we want all MHS students to achieve and this group represents their fellow classmates, our school and community well.”

MHS staff spoke on behalf of each student representative stressing the outstanding qualities that these and so many of our students embody - from leadership to acumen, interest in learning and extra- and co-curriculars. 

“We are proud of these students’ accomplishments, just as we are proud of all our students at MHS,” Zarnott added. “We look forward to their future endeavors and can't wait to hear about their success in college and beyond!”
