Best of the Class

KCAU 9 saluted the area's top academic achievers in our annual "Best of the Class" event. The program started back in 1983 to recognize and encourage academic excellence.

On April 26, 2017, we brought together the valedictorian or top academically-ranked students from over 97 schools in our tri-state area. The event took place at Morningside College in Sioux City, Iowa. The students were honored by videotaping them to be used in commercials saluting their excellence.

If your school would like to be included in "Best of the Class" 2018, please email Daniele Feenstra at
