|Our school has sought to recognize individual
achievements from the beginning in 1947 when the National Honor Society Program was
brought into our school system. Over time other systems have been established. One
of them is unique - SHOGUN. We think it began in the mid 1960's and continues today
at Nile Kinnick High School. Each year Shogun awards are given to deserving Juniors
and Seniors who by their very presence have made Kinnick High School ("KHS") a
better school and a better experience for all students and staff. These students need not
be leaders, popularity people, contest winners, top scholars or outstanding athletes, but
they may be. Frequently, Shogun award winners are "behind the scenes" workers
who have contributed to the success of programs by helping others. They have usually
devoted many hours in this pursuit of helping others and working to help some aspect of
KHS achieve excellence. Shogun recipients are selected by Kinnick faculty members,
and it is the top, most prestigious award given at Kinnick. Are you a
"Shogun" - if so, let us know and we may establish a roster for public view of
those who have been bestowed this honor.
Alumni known to have been awarded Shogun status are identified on the individual yearbook pages.
