We’re saluting area high school seniors who are at the top of their class.
NBC 2/WAWV teamed up with Ivy Tech Community College to host the 23rd Annual Top of the Class luncheon Wednesday at North Central High School in Sullivan County.
We honored 61 valedictorians from high schools across the area. Family and friends celebrated as the seniors accepted certificates.
Ivy Tech representatives say these students could help shape our community’s future.
“It’s important because these individuals may come back and work in the community, and they’re the ones that we see being engaged and working with us in the community and we’re hoping that once they’re done with their education that they settle here and become a part of what we do,” says Rene Hankins, Executive Director of Outreach at Ivy Tech.
Ivy Tech provided each of our valedictorian’s from Indiana with a $1,500 scholarship.
