Pasco Eye Institute notes students' academic gains

The Pasco Eye Institute has initiated a program to recognize students for academic achievement at Gulf High School. The program is designed to single out students who achieve in individual subjects rather than in overall academics.

Dr. Frederick A. Hauber of the Pasco Eye Institute said the program recognizes a student who may not be an overall honor roll student but has good academic achievement in an individual subject.

Fifty students received recognition at the first awards ceremony under the program at Gulf High School.
