Harrison County students were honored Monday evening at the Student Achievement Banquet at Village Square.
This is the 22nd annual banquet rewarding students with scholarships for exceptional achievement. Over $30,000 worth of scholarships was awarded to around 55 students. The students represented all six high schools around the county.
Committee members say they are amazed at just how hard-working these students are.
Robin Ray, one of the committee members of the Student Achievement Board Committee, said, "I couldn't believe how these students were getting 4.0s and better and all the activities that they participated in, whether it was sports or community or caring for other people. These truly are some exceptional students."
All the scholarship money came from community donations.
