The Honors College at WKU and WBKO-TV hosted a reception on April 16 to honor the spring 2013 semester’s Scholar of the Week recipients.
Three students from Clinton County High School were honored during the spring semester as Scholars of the week.
They were Ryan Beard, son of Mike and Lisa Beard; Lamon Tyler Hubbs, son of Lamon and Lisa Hubbs, and Jacob Williams, son of Mike and Teresa Williams.
The Scholar of the Week program recognizes young scholars in southcentral Kentucky and the WBKO viewing area for their academic and extracurricular activities. The Honors College at WKU has been partnering with WBKO since 2010 on the Scholar of the Week Program.
Out of more than 250 applicants, 70 students were chosen as Scholars of the Week for the 2012-2013 academic school year and have their name, high school and accomplishments aired on segments on WBKO’s “10 PM News” on Tuesdays and “AM Kentucky” on Wednesdays.
Dr. Craig T. Cobane, Executive Director of the Honors College at WKU, believes the Scholar of the Week program provides a wonderful showcase of the quality of our local school systems and it reaffirms the mission of WKU and the Honors College to propel our scholars to even greater academic and professional heights.
“These scholars represent a fantastic group of young adults who are seeking out opportunities to succeed in the classroom, on the field, in the workplace, and in many other settings,” Dr. Cobane said. “They deserve to be recognized for their achievements.”
