Sponsored by the Venice Chamber of Commerce and Rotary, the luncheon first took place in 1965. Over the years 1,200 jackets have been awarded to graduating seniors who have achieved high levels of excellence.

Venice Chamber of Commerce Executive Director  Donna Lasman says the Chamber proud to be able to support schools in the Venice community through work done by Joelle Dumas and the Education Committee.

“The Jacket of Excellence awards at Venice High School recognizes students who excel academically, and who are active in sports, clubs and the community. These students are on their way to becoming college graduates and future leaders. We are honored to be a part of this amazing event,” says Lasman.
