Cros-Lex High School Earns National Recognition

Croswell-Lexington High School has been named among the top 31 high schools in Michigan and among the top 1,000 nationally in a report released recently by U.S. News and World Report.

The report analyzed college-readiness data from more than 19,000 public high schools nationally including state MEAP and Michigan Merit Exam, performance by at-risk students, and preparation for college.

Cros-Lex received a "Silver Medal" from U.S. News and World Report and is one of only two high schools in the five county Thumb Area to receive the award.

Hawks family pledges $250,000 in scholarships for Cros-Lex students

Jarold and Marijean Hawks of Jeddo have pledged $250,000 for scholarships to the St. Clair County Community College Foundation’s All Aboard: Campaign for Talent, Technology and Tomorrow.The donation will establish the Jarold and Marijean Hawks Cros-Lex Scholarship Fund. To be eligible for the scholarship, college freshmen and sophomores must have graduated from Croswell-Lexington High School with a cumulative grade point average of 2.5 or better and submit an essay. Awards will vary up to a maximum of $3,000 annually. 

“I want to give back to the community,” Jarold Hawks said. “If you give a person an opportunity to achieve, they can apply these achievements to other areas in their lives. It’s all about creating opportunities these students wouldn’t have otherwise.”

Jarold graduated from Croswell-Lexington High School and attended what was then Port Huron Junior College and went on to co-establish Black River Manufacturing. He is now retired.

"I am so proud that Mr. and Mrs. Hawks have dedicated money to help us achieve our mission of sending more students on to college," said Cros-Lex Superintendent Dr. Kevin Miller. "This is the epitome of giving back to the community in which you live and changing the lives of young people through college education."

Cros-Lex nationally recognized for its Title I efforts

Meyer Elementary School in the Croswell-Lexington School District has been named a Distinguished School by the National Title I Association.  Meyer’s recognition is for exceptional student performance for two or more years. The National Title I Association has been selecting examples of superior Title I school programs for national recognition since 1996. Only two schools from Michigan were selected for this special recognition.

“We have a high level of commitment to the success of all our students,” said Donna Barrier, Meyer Principal. “The work we do every day to provide solid instruction and individual student support helps to make student growth and achievement a reality. We are truly honored to be nationally recognized, and proud to be part of a district that is leading the way toward helping every student reach their fullest academic potential.”

Based on a combination of academic achievement of their students and the creative and innovative programs that contribute to their success, the schools selected in the individual states as National Title I Distinguished Schools join about one hundred other distinguished schools nationwide in making a difference for our nation’s Title I children.


“This is a tribute to the great work our entire staff does working with our Title I teachers to educate and remediate low income children in our district,” Superintendent Kevin Miller said.


Distinguished schools demonstrate a wide array of strengths, including team approaches to teaching and learning, focused professional development opportunities for staff, individualized programs for student success and strong partnerships between the school, parents and the community.  What makes National Title I Distinguished Schools’ stories especially powerful are the documented student achievement gains that have resulted from their innovations.  


“The work of the staff, with support from the whole community in our district, continue to make numerous opportunities possible for all students,” said Julie Western, Curriculum Director.

“This does not just happen; it takes hard work with a vision!   We are very proud of the entire Meyer Staff and this special award!”
Both Cros-Lex Elementary Schools "Beat the Odds"

For the second consecutive year, the Michigan Department of Education has announced that both Cros-Lex Elementary Schools, Frostick Elementary in Croswell and Meyer Elementary in Lexington, are being honored as "Beating the Odds" schools.  

"We are so proud of our elementary schools," said Dr. Kevin Miller, Superintendent of Croswell-Lexington Schools.  "We know all the outstanding things we do for elementary students, but it sure is nice to be recognized by the state for our efforts!  Our teaching staff and aides are committed to excellence and we simply refuse to let any child slip through the cracks. 

Beating the Odds recognizes Michigan schools that are finding ways to overcome identifiable risk factors associated with low student achievement, such as economic status or race and ethnicity.  
"This award is so well-deserved by the awesome staff and students at Frostick," said Julie Western, who was Principal at Frostick until July before taking over as the district's Director of Curriculum and Instruction.  "It speaks volumes for what happens each day for students and it is a reflection of the hard work and dedication of the staff.  Meeting the individual needs of each child to reach his/her full potential has always been the most important goal of Frostick and our district.  I am so proud of each and every person who has worked so hard to make this happen!" 

Meyer Elementary was honored for the third consecutive year as a Beating the Odds school. "Our ongoing results reflect the day to day commitment by our staff to support student achievement," said Donna Barrier, Meyer Principal.  "We challenge each student to perform to his/her highest potential. We have an amazing collaborative culture at Meyer. We are willing to do whatever it takes to help our students to be successful."
