2021 Underclassmen Awards

Viera High School is Honored to announce the 2020 – 2021 Underclassmen Awards

Each year the VHS faculty collaborates to select underclassmen who are the top performer and the student with the most grit (passion and perseverance) within subject areas.  This year, with its extra challenges, many students have risen above the regular and unforeseen challenges to bring their BEST.  At this time, we are excited to celebrate some of our students’ achievements of passion, perseverance, and performance.  Please join us in celebrating our students.  Award certificates will be distributed to brick-and-mortar students, by one of their teachers.  E-learners may pick up their awards from the front office, starting Monday 5/24/21.

It is our honor to announce and celebrate:
