Seniors honored with awards, scholarships

By Hannah Bute


Each year, Flora High School hosts a senior awards ceremony in the auditorium. During this ceremony, various scholarships are granted to graduating seniors. These scholarships range from $200 to $2000 or more, and they come in the forms of memorial scholarships, academic scholarships, and athletic scholarships.
