Lots of exciting things happening in Winston County with Mississippi Scholars and Mississippi Scholars Tech Master. Local presenters made presentations in 5 schools to more than 270 students across the county. This year, the county recognized 36 MS Scholars compared to 54 in 2014.
Three Mississippi Scholars received $1,000 scholarships each and celebrated at Lake Tiak-O-Khata. They are featured above from left to right: Ty Fulton, Louisville High School; Colby Jones, Noxapater High School; and Andrew Woodruff, Winston Academy.
Under the leadership of Mary Snow, Winston County Coordinator for Mississippi Scholars and Mississippi Scholars Tech Master, the Chamber will meet with 9th-10th graders in all 5 schools after report cards to monitor progress. The theme for the County is “Get You Head in the Game.”
