Each year, the Lincolnton-Lincoln County Chamber of Commerce and the Lincoln County Board of Education co-sponsor their Academic Achievement Awards Banquet. The banquet gives the opportunity for the community to recognize the top ten academic students from each of the Lincoln County Schools' four high schools. Selected students are presented scholarships from the Business & Professional Women's Club, Robert Bosch Tool Corporation, the S. Ray Lowder Scholarship Fund, and the Lincolnton-Lincoln County Chamber of Commerce among others. This year's banquet will be the 35th in the series.
The Lincoln Herald wants to honor these outstanding students. We will be publishing a photo gallery of the Top Ten Students from each of these schools over the next four days (Thursday, May 15-Sunday, May 18). Today's gallery is the Top Ten from East Lincoln High School. Please note that the photos in the attached gallery are not in the same order as the listing of students here and are in no certain order. The name of each student appears to the right of the individual photo.
