VanZetten named "Outstanding Graduate" by Detroit News

For nearly four decades, The Detroit News has saluted a group of Michigan’s best and brightest high school students in the spring of their senior year. Holland Valedictorian Greta VanZetten was named among the Outstanding Graduates this year.

The top seniors were chosen from a field of outstanding nominees and each  receives a $1,000 scholarship. Public and private high schools in Michigan were invited to nominate students in each of 11 categories. Students were selected on the basis of grades, test scores, honors, community involvement and a demonstrated ability in one of the academic areas. In a special category called Against All Odds students were recognized for succeeding despite a physical hardship or special, personal or family challenges.

Final selections were made by panels of judges that included teachers, counselors and other academic specialists.
