Graduating seniors at Bruno-Pyatt High School who met the requirements of the Arkansas Scholars program gathered before graduation May 11.

Back row (from left) are: Flara Taylor, Jeremiah Hilles, Westley Harris, and Jeffrey Wessels. In Marion County, the program is sponsored by Marion County Adult Leadership group and South Shore Foundation.

Students graduating throughout Arkansas are recognized as Arkansas Scholars™ if they meet academic and school attendance goals of the program. Here, the program is called South Shore Arkansas Scholars, named after the sponsor, South Shore Foundation.

At Bruno-Pyatt High School, nine 2006 graduates were able to wear white cords with their caps and gowns indicating they met requirements.

To be a South Shore Arkansas Scholar, a student must have met all of the following requirements since they started ninth grade: All semester grades were Cs and above; courses recommended for higher education after high school were completed; attendance was at least 95 percent; and high school was completed in eight consecutive semesters.

This is the second year that Bruno-Pyatt students have been eligible to be named Arkansas Scholars even though the full program just started in the ninth grade this school year. Graduating students had academic and attendance records to qualify without participating in the incentive program.

Marion County Adult Leadership group works with the schools and students, and local businesses support the program with discounts or free items for participants, or donations for special events for the students.

For more information, contact Marion County Adult Leadership President David Brightwell.
