Students Honored for Academic Excellence at Annual Banquet

Top academic seniors from around the county were honored at the LeGrand Center's largest one-day event where over 900 were in attendance for the 13th Annual Senior Scholars Banquet.  Parents, donors, presenters, and school staff members from around the county gathered to congratulate the seniors and recognize their academic efforts.

Over 200 attending seniors received a $500 A. Mickey Church Scholarship and was recognized individually by their donor(s).

"This event not only concludes another successful year for the Cleveland County Schools Educational Foundation and county school system, it culminates the sustained educational success of our senior scholars," said Dr. George Litton, president of the CCS Educational Foundation.  This would not have been possible without the support of our community as well as the dedication of our board of directors.

Some of the scholarship funds presented were generated by the Turner Trucking Co. Academic Awards Golf Tournament sponsored by the Foundation last October at the River Bend YMCA Golf Club. Many of the tournament’s benefactors and patron sponsors attended the banquet and presented scholarships to the senior recipients. 

"For the attending seniors, this banquet represents over 2,700 years of educational excellence," said Jamey Davis, vice president of the CCS Educational Foundation.  "I am proud of each scholarship recipient and humbled to be part of an organization exclusively dedicated to honoring educational achievements."
