In June of 2020, the Ambridge Area School District will induct the 7th round of recipients into the “Hall of Honor.”

One-time distinctions or awards may be appropriate if they are at a national or state level. Nominees must have graduated at least ten years prior before they are eligible. The purpose of the Hall of Honor is to recognize alumni who have achieved outstanding accomplishments and to establish a lasting relationship with their alma mater.

The Ambridge Area School Counseling Department's Advisory Council K-12 held its inaugural meeting on Friday, Nov. 15 at Ambridge Area High School. The council is designed to provide a partnership with members of the local community to increase meaningful opportunities for K-12 students in career exploration and development.
During the meeting, a team of school administrators and school counselors strived to showcase how the K-12 career activities at Ambridge Area School District provide a comprehensive process for student development in career awareness, exploration and pllanning. Participation and feedback from the community was solicited and included representatives from local businesses, nonproft organizations, associations and postsecondary institutions, pertaining to activities and experiences that will enhance the job-readiness skills and post-graduate opportunities for students.
The Advisory Committee plans to meet three times annually. The committee will reconvene in Spring 2020 to review goal progress, and again in the Fall of 2020.
