"All A" students rewarded

Academically thriving Thomas County Central High School students were rewarded for their hard work with “All A Lunch.” The lunch, held Aug. 14, gave students who achieved a 90 or above in all academic subjects in the last nine weeks of the 2014-2015 school year the opportunity to eat off campus. Students were given a choice of restaurants: Longhorn, IHOP, Whataburger, El Paso, or Zaxby’s. After students ate, they spent time at Cherokee Lake until it was time to return to school. “’All A Lunch’ is, and always will be, the best part about school,” senior participant Zack Johnson said.
