Celebrating Positive Character

Hillgrove High School recognizes outstanding character.

Dr. Harry Hill, namesake of Hillgrove High School, was born November 7, 1917 and passed away at the age of 98 on October 27, 2016. He is remembered for his lifetime of service and humility. In his honor, the Hillgrove counselors, with the help of counseling students at Georgia State University, created the Dr. Hill Character awards.  The Awards seek to honor and highlight students for positive contributions to our school and community. Teachers and staff members have an opportunity to nominate students for embodying the character trait of the month. The students are recognized through the announcements and a bulletin board display. Our Principal personally calls their parents and students will be recognized during Honors Night in May.

The Dr. Hill Character Awardee for each month embodies a spirit of…

  • September: Integrity
  • October: Problem-Solving
  • November: Leadership
  • December: Empowerment
  • January: Bravery
  • February: Creativity & Innovation
  • March: Determination
  • April: Compassion
