The Top Topper is awarded monthly to an HHS student showing exemplified characteristics in leadership, attitude, and direction.  Teachers of HHS nominate students with administration making the final decision.

    Hillsboro High School Top Topper Program strives to improve school climate through recognizing students for their acts of kindness and other good deeds that are performed on campus.  Established last year this program is supported by local businesses.  The Orpheum Theatre, Westside Cinema, Gianni's Pizza, Hardee's, McDonald's, Subway, Pizza Man, Pizza Hut, and Little Italy's have all provided Top Toppers with a night out on the town with dinner and a movie.  To be eligible, students are nominated by a high school staff member each month.  The idea behind the Top Topper Program was to reward behavior that is often over-looked.  There is hope that the program will grow to the point that it creates a positive school climate of connected individuals.  Gandhi suggested that one should, “Be the change that you wish to see in the world.”  The Top Topper Program recognizes those who exhibit a willingness to contribute their efforts in making Hillsboro High School a better place.
