This program began in 1989 recognizing just 100 students. Since then, FWISD has recognized more than 7,000 students for academic excellence through the Academic Sweatshirt Scholar program.
The program, now in its 27th year, was created to acknowledge students who complete their sophomore year with a GPA of 3.8 or higher. Students who earn the Academic Sweatshirt Scholar distinction receive a special sweatshirt that features the initials of the student’s school, the academic banner, and the student’s monogram on the sleeve.
