The Exchange Club of Lake Highlands presented its monthly student awards to four Lake Highlands High School students at its January 10 meeting. Character Counts awards are presented each month to two students who display outstanding character traits at school and in the community. Youth of the Month awards go to students who excel in academics and in leadership and are in the top 20 percent of the senior class. Pictured, left to right, are: John Torres, Exchange Club vice president; Character Counts winners Adyline Bentley and Johnny Lockridge; Youth of the Month winners Sam Brokaw and Harper Ginn; and LHHS Principal Kerri Jones.
