City Celebrates Decade of Mayor's Scholars

Hopkinsville City Council honored this year’s top 10 Mayor’s Scholars and celebrated a decade of the program at tonight’s meeting.  Since 2011, 754 students have earned the designation of Mayor’s Scholars.  The program was launched as part of a Partners in Education project to promote the Rotary Scholars program at the city’s former partner school, North Drive Middle School.  In 2013 the program was expanded to all public middle schools and again in 2015 to all five middle schools in Christian County.  

To be selected as a Mayor’s Scholar, 8th grade students must have a 2.5 GPA, maintain a 95% attendance rate, have no office referrals, and submit an essay.  This year’s essay theme was to outline the most pressing issues facing Christian County students and suggestions about how to address them.  

County-wide some 635 essays were written by middle schoolers attending each of Hopkinsville’s public or private middle schools.  The top 65 essayists are invited to enjoy a day-long field trip to Murray State University main campus on February 27.  

Special tribute was paid to students writing the best essays including in-school recognitions, a trophy, and cash prizes ranging from $25 for those essays judged 2nd through 10th place and $50 for the 1st place essay.
