Ascension Catholic High School's annual academic banquet was held at Ascension of Our Lord Catholic Church in Donaldsonville on the morning of Sept. 22.

Last year, the ceremony was held at the school's gym. In previous years, the banquet took place at Bernardo's in the evening. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the location was changed over the last two years.

Students recognized included those earning honor roll of excellence (4.0 and above) and high honor roll (3.86 to 3.9). First-time recipients received the academic lamp, while multiple recipients received the academic bar.

Once again this year, memorial scholarships were awarded to current students.
