East Texas School Receives National Honor For Excellence

A ceremony Thursday honored St. Gregory Catholic School for being designated the 2006 Blue Ribbon School by the U.S. Department of Education.

It rewards the school's excellence in student achievement, teaching, curriculum, leadership, parent involvement and community support.

The school says it's the students who should be especially proud.

"[The students] are so excited. They know that it's their hard work that achieved this designation as a school community. And they are as proud and happy as we are," says Kathy Harry, St. Gregory Catholic School Principal.

This is the second time St. Gregory received this award. The first was in 1999.
