Students of Excellence
Local Chambers of Commerce collaborate with high schools in the county to recognize Students of Excellence in each grade level at four Board of Education meetings during the school year. Each chamber selects a student from among applications submitted from the high school in their area. Students who apply must have at least a 3.0 grade point average and show evidence of service in their communities and schools. A chamber representative for each area is on hand at the meeting to honor their student with a plaque and other rewards for their meritorious service and achievement.
