MOUNT VERNON — Exemplary students from the Knox County Career Center and Mount Vernon High School were celebrated Thursday evening at the 56th annual Kiwanis Club Scholastic Recognition program at the MVHS theater.

The program kicks off the academic awards season in the county, Kiwanis vocational guidance committee co-chair Vicki Carney explained in her opening remarks. This year the club honored 94 students in the program with a $50 academic award provided by generous community donors in support of Knox community youth education.

“Kiwanis focuses on changing the world by serving children, one child and one community at a time,” Carney said.
