The Calhoun County Take Stock in Children banquet was held Thursday night at the W.T. Neal Civic Center with three local freshman awarded scholarships to college.
Assistant Superintendent Vicki Davis is shown above presenting the scholarships to David Benditt, P.J. Iller, and Ronnie Tucker. Since 1995, more than 16,000 children in the State of Florida have been enrolled in the Take Stock in Children program. Upon selection, students and parents/guardians sign contracts agreeing to fulfill specific performance standards.
To be awarded their scholarships, students must stay in school, maintain good grades, exhibit good behavior, remain crime and drug free, and meet with their mentors once a week. Congratulations to these outstanding students on being awarded this prestigious scholarship!
