• The Nomination and Selection Process

    To be selected as a North Beach High School Graduate of Distinction, a North Beach High School graduate must be nominated for the award. The nominee must have graduated at least ten years prior to nomination and have spent at least seven years in the North Beach School District attending school.

    A note about students who attended Tahola K-8 prior to 1991: Until 1991, when the Taholah High School was established, Taholah only had an elementary school; K-8. If Taholah students wished, they could attend North Beach High School which was located in Moclips, Washington. Therefore, if any students from Taholah attended North Beach High School for a minimum of four (4) years prior to 1991, they too, shall be eligible for the North Beach Graduate of Distinction Award.

    A committee of five from the North Beach community will review all nominations and select the final two who will be honored this year at a special ceremony. Nominations for those not selected will be held for five years and be reconsidered yearly for those five years.

    Nomination forms are available at the North Beach School District Office. Completed nomination forms should be sent to Wendy McCoy, wmccoy@northbeachschools.org or by mail: Wendy McCoy, North Beach School District, PO Box 159, Ocean Shores, WA 98569.

    We encourage people to nominate worthy graduates for this honor. Once the committee makes their selection, recipients of the award will be honored at the high school in a special ceremony. This is a very special honor and we hope that people in the community will help us to recognize our outstanding graduates.
