Most of the nearly 300 seniors from Grayson County High School were in attendance Tuesday at the third annual Senior Tea, held at Leitchfield United Methodist Church.
Students had the opportunity to get dressed up and enjoy refreshments, entertainment and some great guest speakers. One lucky senior was also awarded a $500 college scholarship, sponsored by the employees of the detention center.
Claire Crawford won the scholarship with her essay on the topic, “what is my goal, and why.”
Guest speakers included Deputy Jailer Jason Woosley, Board of Education Superintendent Barry Anderson, Kentucky State Police Trooper Norman Chaffins, County Attorney Clay Ratley, and local resident Kyle Blankenship.
“This was our smoothest year yet,” said event coordinator Kim Willis.
Willis said, “They were the most well-behaved class we’ve ever seen. We didn’t have trouble with any of these students, and they were very well-mannered.”
Even these well-mannered kids seized the opportunity to cut loose and enjoy themselves, though, with entertainment provided by R & B Productions.
Several community businesses also pitched in by donating items for the goodie bags that each of the seniors received.
