With caps and gowns in hand, some of top high school students in the area posed for pictures with their peers and shared a luncheon specifically held in their honor. The area's top students representing their respective high schools were honored at the Ninth Annual Best of the Class salute, held at Southeast Community College on Thursday, May 3, 2011.
In the morning, students interacted with other students as Channel 8 KLKN-TV camera crews recorded them to be incorporated into Best of the Class commercial announcements, which will air on Channel 8 KLKN-TV. Students posed for group pictures before being treated to a short program and a luncheon catered by Amigos. The luncheon program was hosted by Channel 8 Eyewitness News anchor Rod Fowler.
Joseph Busby, a veteran and a current student here at Southeast Community College delivered the keynote speech. He is an entrepreneurship student about to launch his own business. He graduated from UNL, and is going to SCC because he wanted to learn how to launch a business. Joseph says, "The SCC Entrepreneurship Center is a spectacular place to learn practical steps to doing so".
Southeast Community College, Amigos and US Cellular co-sponsored the event along with Channel 8 KLKN-TV. We would also like to thank LES, Super Saver, Roberts Dairy and Pepsi for their support.
