Area seniors honored for academic effort

During a Monday night dinner, 37 area high school seniors were recognized for academic success through earning cumulative grade point averages of 4.0 or higher since the ninth grade.

Cindy Harris said the Bank of Clovis has sponsored the dinner for 24 years in a desire to recognize those students who work hard through their high school years.

“These kids are our future leaders and they are kids who have studied hard throughout all their school years,” she said.

The students recognized were invited to bring a parent and a teacher or mentor and received a small gift, but the dinner is more about acknowledging their efforts by, “treating them to dinner.”
