The Best of the Class of 2006 Honored

With caps and gowns in hand, some of the areas top high school students 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 Third Annual Best of the Class salute held at Nebraska Wesleyan University on Wednesday, May 3rd.

In the morning, students interacted with other students as Channel 8 KLKN-TV camera crews video taped them. The video tape shot, will be incorporated into Best of the Class commercial announcements, which will air on Channel 8 KLKN-TV starting May 22. The threatening weather forced the group inside where the students posed for group pictures before being treated to a short program and a luncheon catered by Arby's . The luncheon program was co-hosted by Channel 8 Eyewitness News anchors Rod Fowler and  Lauren Silverman. 

Each student received a certificate of achievement and a t-shirt commemorating the day. Nebraska Wesleyan University, Alltel and Arby's co-sponsored the event along with Channel 8 KLKN-TV.
