VIP Props Awards 2018-2019:
The VIP Props award is a new recognition program the VIPS have put into affect this year. The intention behind the award is: "In recognition of an outstanding student going above and beyond for the benefit of others, expecting nothing in return." In the past, these awards have been presented at the Awards Ceremony in May, but as we all know, this year did not go as planned. This year, these 9 students were recognized via a video made by Missy and Heidi, which was shown at the Virtual Awards night in May of 2020. Covid-19 has forced us to change the way we do a lot of things, but we were thankfully still able to give props to these astounding students.

Dustin Grundmeyer - for running constant errands for the VIPS during MCM while we were busy doing set up.
