Emily Ammons, Crestview High School, with a GPA of 4.7720, was named this year’s winner of the prestigious Peggy Gorday Bruner Award.
Each year, our School Board hosts a reception honoring the top academic seniors in Okaloosa County. Typically, 1,500 students, parents and friends join together in celebration of academic excellence at the Mattie Kelly Arts Center at Northwest Florida State College. Regrettably, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the event had to be canceled this year. However, I am pleased to announce that this special group is being honored in a unique way this year with a two-page spread in the Northwest Florida Daily News.
