The Atmore Rotary Club honored students who have excelled academically Thursday night at the organization’s 23rd Annual Academic All-Star Program at Atmore First Assembly of God.
The guest speaker for the evening was First Baptist Church of Brewton pastor, the Rev. Jack Fitts, who acknowledged the achievements of the Academic All-Stars.
Fitts spoke highly of the accomplishments of the students from Atmore Christian School, Escambia Academy, Northview High School and Escambia County High School.
The Academic All-Stars were acknowledged individually as they were called to the stage and given a plaque.
