A handful of local high school students are basking in the spotlight this afternoon. The teens took part in Lincoln High School's special recognition awards assembly.
Several dozen students were given accolades this morning, students that often times might not be acknowledged for their efforts.
More than 40 students were honored during Lincoln High School's special recognition awards assembly.
The students are nominated by teachers for setting fine examples through their often unnoticed accomplishments like improving academic standings, or good behavior.
The special recognition awards assembly was created to recognize students for contributions to Lincoln High School.
Educators say this is one of their favorite assemblies to attend. The students are very excited about the awards. The special recognition awards assembly has been going on at Lincoln since 1987, so nearly 20 years of paying special recognition to several deserving students.
