Delta Council hosted its 18th Annual Salute to Delta Honor Graduates event during the 86th Annual Meeting of the regional organization recently at Delta State University.
The Honor Graduate Event is designed to bestow special honor upon two exemplary students from each of the high schools throughout the Mississippi Delta Region, including public, parochial and private schools. Students are selected by school administrators based on leadership, extra-curricular, scholastic, and community service.
In addition, a $2,500 scholarship was awarded to the top Delta Honor Graduate as selected by higher education officials in the Delta, to help defray tuition and expenses as the student’s college of choice sees fit. The top Delta Honor Graduate were recognized from the stage of the Annual Meeting during the Business Session that morning.
