The Lincolnton-Lincoln County Chamber of Commerce held its 40th annual Academic Achievement Awards banquet Thursday evening at the James W. Warren Citizens Center.  The Chamber recognized the top 10 students at each of the Lincoln County Schools high schools.  

Lavell Hall, a basketball star during his high school days at East Lincoln High School and later a very successful coach at Lincolnton High School, was the keynote speaker.  Hall told the students who made their school's top 10 that they could be proud of the accomplishment--but said they should take time to thank those who helped them achieve their success: parents, teachers and others.  "I've heard some speakers at events like this congratulate the winners and tell them it's time now for them to take their place in society.  You don't take it--you earn it," he said.  "You earned this honor, and you deserve to be congratulated, but after the applause for your accomplishment dies down, it will be good for you to remember those who helped you along the way."  

Chamber president Doug Croft announced the winners of the Chamber's Bo Moore Scholarships, named for the late former chairman of the Chamber board of directors who died in 2011.  The winners, each of whom will receive a $1,000 college scholarship are:
  • Morgan Elayne Edwards of East Lincoln HIgh School

A 2018 survey of almost 3,500 US adults found that 64% at least sometimes get news from a news website or app, about the same percentage (64%) who said they watch local TV news.  Almost half (47%) of adults get news at least sometimes from a social media site. That exceeds the 41% who read newspapers in print. TV and print actually lost ground from a similar survey conducted in 2016, while digital made advances in preference since then.
