Weddington High School held its Fall Excelsior Awards Breakfast on Friday, December 7, 2012.

Twice a year, each department chooses one male and one female student to receive the Departmental Excelsior Award for their accomplishments. Each student was presented a medallion.

Seniors recognized were Caleb Adams, Shelby Capps, Sydnei Davis, Nicole Gaylord, Juan Mata, Alex Mull, and Austin Webb. Juniors recognized were Kelsey Cabrera, Kevin Centrella, Taylor Hickerson, Cary Lausch, Zachary McLaughlin, Gabrielle Schmall, Steven Sessoms, Wesley Shumate and Chyna Tillman.
