High achievers saluted

May 9, 2008


Albany -- Some outstanding high school students in Dougherty County were rewarded for their hard work Friday in a ceremony at the Parks of Chehaw.      

The highlight of the ceremony was the presentation of special awards to some of the High School High Tech seniors at Westover High School.

Two scholarship recipients told us what the program has done for them.   

 "It's helped me a whole lot, it's become a better leader than I am today," says Scholarship recipient Jennifer May.  

"It helped me in my classes and other stuff like with my work and stuff. I appreciate what they've done. And they've been so good this whole entire year," said Scholarship recipient Jared McCollum.  

 After the presentation, lunch was served. A total of 62 students took part in the program during the 2007-2008 school year.
