In an effort to make the academic achievements and recognitions of local students more special, one community organization is stepping up again to make that happen.
Eileen Carter, with the Clinton Community Education Foundation, explains they are stepping up again this year to provide local students with a more than just another awards ceremony through their annual Gold Star Banquet.
The banquet is by invitation only, and those have gone out for the year. As a part of the event, to make it more affordable, Carter indicates the CCEF has helped pick up the tab for this year's dinner.
At the Gold Star Banquet, students will find out what scholarships they have received and Carter adds, they will award a new scholarship in addition to all the others.
