One-hundred-and-forty-nine area students were recognized as Atmore Rotary Club Academic All-Stars.

The Academic All-Star program began in 1985 by the Atmore Rotary Club to recognize students who obtained academic achievement in high school by maintaining all As and Bs.

“The closing of the current academic year because of the COVID-19 pandemic is not what anyone expected when the school year began,” Academic All-Star Coordinator Cindy Lee said in a release. “Alterations were required for the program, but the club is proud to have been able to carry on the 35th year of recognition for area students.”

Lee said there are 149 Academic All-Stars from Atmore Christian School, Escambia Academy, Escambia County High School and Northview High School.

Dedicated Rotarians put forth their usual effort to provide funds from local businesses and organizations for advertisements in a printed program, and the local community responded as they always do in support of this program, she said.

“The Rotary Club is grateful for this continued support,” Lee said.

Lee said even in the midst of altered operations, all of the schools were able to submit the information needed to recognize the students.

“Because an event could not be held, the students were mailed their recognition letter, certificate and senior medallion,” she said. “Included with the packet was the printed program containing the advertisements from the community supporting this program, which would normally be distributed at the event.”

Lee said this year, the club is presenting over $15,000 in scholarships for 24 seniors.

“Each four-year senior Academic All-Star will receive a scholarship for $900,” she said. “The seniors who have been an Academic All-Stars for three years will receive $650; two year seniors will receive $550; and one year seniors will receive $450.”

Rotarians work diligently to prepare for the event and are always excited and proud of the participation of the students, their families and school representatives, she said.

“While it is disappointing to not be able to spotlight these students at a community event, Rotarians are glad to be able to carry on the tradition of recognition and scholarships,” she said. “The 2019-2020 academic year will long be remembered as the year all endured and overcame many adversities not ever imagined.

“We hope that the recognition these students receive as a 2020 Academic All-Star will be a fond memory of this year, and will inspire them to share the Rotary values throughout their lives,” she said.

The following is a list of students recognized for their academic achievements.
