Glory Awards

Ten Wentzville School District students have been named recipients of the 2020 Glory of Missouri Award by State Representatives Bryan Spencer and Justin Hill. The Glory of Missouri Awards were created to recognize students who display virtuous qualities both as students and as citizens. Each student honored represents one of the virtues of good government engraved on the walls of the House Chamber. The virtues include knowledge, liberty, equality, law, justice, fraternity, education, progress, honor, truth, virtue, temperance, enterprise and charity.

"It has been such an incredible honor during my time in office to be able to recognize our most outstanding young people. Over the years we have been able to shine a spotlight on remarkable young men and women who have made positive contributions to their schools and communities. This year we once again pause to recognize our very best students and citizens," said Spencer, R-Wentzville. "These students are among some of our best and brightest," added Hill, R-Lake St. Louis, "Representative Spencer and I are proud to recognize them with this award."
