The 40th annual Super Seven Dinner was held March 30, 2015 at the Trinity United Methodist Church in Friendship Hall.
The evening is a celebration in honor of students with the top academic records for both the junior and senior classes at Colusa High School.
The Super Seven Dinner originated in 1975 based on a proposal by Florence Stevens, President of the Colusa Women’s Club. The Club continued the tradition for 22 years until the club disbanded.
In 1998, the Gamma Alpha Master Chapter of Beta Sigma Phi resumed the program, and has since been joined by the Soroptimist International of Colusa County, in honoring academic excellence.
During the event the seniors also honored the teacher who they felt had influenced them the most.
