Alexandra Swanson of Pittsfield High School and Benjamin Vengalil of Taconic High School were both recognized with the Massachusetts Association of School Superintendents' Certificate of Academic Excellence.
The Hoosac Valley High senior was presented on Monday with the Superintendent's Academic Excellence Award, and attended the School Committee meeting to receive directly from Superintendent Aaron Dean's hands.
Booth, daughter of Eric and Laurie Booth of Clarksburg, holds the highest grade-point average in her class and has taken 13 Advanced Placement courses, two dual enrollment courses through Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts, and a course through Berkshire Community College.
Typically the award is given out in December, however, the multi-talented Vanessa Harrington was unable to attend because she was performing in a dance competition in Disney World in the state of Florida.
Francisco Alicandri, a senior and the student representative on the School Committee, was presented with the Superintendent's Certificate for Academic Excellence on Tuesday. His sister, Vincienza, had earned the same honor last year.
