West Harrison High School career and college signing day

This morning at West Harrison High School, it was a celebration for graduating seniors going on to college with a scholarship or joining the military.

The entire student body honored those seniors in a special assembly. As a whole, the West Harrison seniors received over eight million dollars in scholarship money from dozens of universities and colleges across the nation. A number of them have decided to serve their country and join the military.

Senior Mikayla Hickman was awarded a Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College band scholarship as well as an award for academic excellence. “So that will be good. It’s paying for books and stuff and I still get to do what I love and get to go to school for free. We do like the marching shows, the parades, and football games. It’s just what you would do in high school, but it is not as competitive. I am excited to go and meet new people and just get out of this school.”

Kobe Hayes, who will be attending Washington University in the fall, was the top scholarship recipient and earned over one million dollars in money.
