Aye spoke of the Lions’ focus on service, especially to their local community. He said the students present earned the scholarships through “hard work and the support of their parents.”

With that, seniors Emily Scarborough, Zoe Kimbrough, Bryce Friga, and Brady Walton were invited to take a seat at the head table and receive their scholarship certificates. Each student gave a short self-introduction and overview of their plans for higher education and career.
