North Miami Senior High Silver Knight Winners
By: Charles Corway
The Silver Knight Award was created by Knight-Ridder Newspapers (parent company of The Miami Herald) in 1959 to honor students in Dade (now Miami-Dade) and Broward counties who achieve not only academic excellence, but who also unselfishly apply their knowledge and talents to their school and the community at large.

The awards are given to graduating seniors who undergo an exhausting evaluation of their scholarship and activities during their high school years. Silver Knight nominees compete in fourteen different categories. The winner receives the prestigious Silver Knight trophy, and students given the distinction of an ‘Honorable Mention’ receive a plaque.
