Four years of hard work and ex­cel­lence paid off for the Rock­mart High se­nior class dur­ing hon­ors night, where, sur­rounded by friends and fam­ily, some of the school’s best and bright­est took home aca­demic awards and other ac­co­lades.

Those who ex­celled in a par­tic­u­lar sub­ject such as Bri­tish Lit­er­a­ture or AP Cal­cu­lus, par­tic­i­pated in their lo­cal com­mu­nity, or demon­strated merit in other ways were given cer­tifi­cates that prom­ise to boost any re­sume or port­fo­lio.

Mon­tana Barber took home the AP Eco­nomics award, Jack­son Nor­ris earned the sci­ence award, and Noah San­ders re­ceived the award for en­gi­neer­ing.

There were also re­wards for small an­i­mal care, au­to­mo­tive ex­cel­lence, and on the job train­ing. In fact, the se­niors man­aged to rake to­gether ap­prox­i­mately 18,000 hours of train­ing dur­ing the 2018-2019 year.

On top of cer­tifi­cates, dozens of schol­ar­ships to­tal­ing thou­sands of dol­lars were given out to var­i­ous stu­dents based on their char­ac­ter and con­tri­bu­tions dur­ing their school ca­reer.

Krista Fuller and Nor­ris took home the Ex­change Club schol­ar­ship and Al­li­son Wo­mack earned the LEAD Polk Class of 2018 schol­ar­ship. Other lo­cal en­ti­ties and busi­nesses such as the Rock­mart Cul­tural Arts Cen­ter, Soli’s restau­rant, and Chick-Fil-A con­trib­uted school money.

An anony­mous lo­cal funded the re­turn of the David Snipes Memo­rial Schol­ar­ship which of­fers money to stu­dents who har­bor the same spirit, pas­sion, and love for mu­sic the late band teacher was known for.

Other memo­rial schol­ar­ships were awarded for sim­i­lar rea­sons, and mem­bers of the Corey God­frey fam­ily, the Kris­ten Hearne fam­ily, and the Bran­don Mor­ris fam­ily were all present to award stu­dents.

With cer­tifi­cates, schol­ar­ships, and diplo­mas, the class of 2019 is more than pre­pared for their next step in life.
