Austin - Senior Awards Ceremony
They have an awards ceremony for the Seniors each year. They announce student scholarships, school awards and present National Honor Society members with their stole. He received the Florida Academic Scholars Award and was also 1 of 6 seniors awarded GCHS Pride Award in Science.
Austin has been awarded a $410/semester scholarship from BYU-Idaho. He also achieved the highest level for the Florida Bright Futures Scholars. If he were to stay and go to a Florida Public Institution he would have 100% tuition and fees paid plus $225 per semester for college expenses for four years.
He has decided, however, to attend BYU-Utah which was always his first choice.
