There are a number of activities in April and May that I look forward to every year. One I particularly look forward to is the Upchurch and Jowers All-Academic Team Dinner. 21 years ago, Mr. Victor Jowers came up with the idea to have a recognition for academic achievement similar to what is done for athletes. This event has become a very valued and important tradition in our community. Last evening, 30 seniors from across our district were recognized. I always enjoy hearing each of the honorees talk about their plans and hear them express their gratitude to their families and others who have supported them along the way. Many thanks to the folks at Upchurch and Jowers for their making this event possible each year. A great night of celebration of the accomplishments of young people and the people who have helped them along the journey!
