Lodi Students Honored at Capitol Conference

Each year, the Capitol Conference hosts an honors banquet for the top honors students from member schools.  This year, 7 Lodi students received that honor.

Those students, pictured above, are:

  • Melissa Burmeister
  • Brandon Grover
  • Samantha Mori
  • Zach Potter
  • Ben Simplot
  • Elizabeth TenBarge
  • Blaise Zander

Because of the current COVID-19 situation, the banquet wasn’t held, but the students were still recognized for their achievements, and received a plaque and program.

What Was the Honor?

Lodi High School confers honors under a “laude” system.  Each of the seven students earned “summa cum laude”–a Latin phrase meaning “with highest honors”.  This is earned through both a high GPA, and participation in certain high-level classes. The student’s GPA is multiplied by the number of points accumulated through these advanced classes.  This system highlights the student’s ability to successfully compete at the highest academic levels.
