The Evening of Excellence is held each spring to honor the top five percent of academic graduates at Central High School and Stevens High School, additional outstanding graduates and the educators who have inspired them. The nominees and winner of our Teacher of the Year program will also be honored and the event serves as our primary fundraiser for the Rapid City Public School Foundation’s Grant Program.
