South Georgia graduating seniors honored

June 22, 2006

Albany-- Some South Georgia students were honored for going above and beyond their scholarly duties.

At the 2nd annual Excellence in Education Scholarship Awards banquet, ten graduating seniors were honored for their high academic achievements, involvement with the community and their character. K-Country uses the awards banquet to reward students for the hard work that often goes unnoticed.  

"There's still such a bad rap for students these days and it's always nice to be able to award the ones that are really working hard to stand out," says K-Country's Dotty Davis.

The students were chosen from Dougherty, Lee and Worth counties.  Crisp Academy student Ashley Buford and Tift Area Academy's Heather Gilman both received a $500 Excellence in Education Scholarship from K-Country and Copelan Insurance.
