Mayor McMillian said “I was so proud to be part of the annual Awards Recognition Program, which has recognized the academic achievements of students in this community for 22 years now. As a board member for the Clarksville-Montgomery County Education Foundation as well as the Mayor of Clarksville, Tennessee I realize how vital education is to us all and to our progress as a city. I hope these awards encourage our young people to continue to excel in their studies, as well as inspire other students to reach higher in their academic pursuits.”

Principle Tosha Diggs was justifiably proud of her students, “We are very proud of all of our students and were happy to be able to recognize them, particularly with their parents present, and in front of their classmates so that other students can have a goal as to what they want to achieve in their next few years in high school.”   She continued, ” We also want to thank our faculty members for participating in the program and recognizing many of our students for their in school academic achievements. So we are very proud of them as well as the students who took part in the program representing other activities; like the West Creek High School JROTC cadets who presented the colors, and Drisana Garrard,  the young lady who sang the national anthem.”

Kenny York from Mana Cafè Ministries was presented with the Community Focused Group Award for his work feeling the hungry in our community.
