Elsberry High School changed things up a little this year as an awards and scholarships night was held for seniors, as opposed to the presentations at graduation. Members of the Class of 2021 were invited to a special event honoring their academic achievements and scholarships for their next chapter in their life. Family and friends watched as over $61,000 in local scholarships were awarded to students, not to mention the monetary contributions from universities and trade schools they will be attending.
Also presented at this event were the five outstanding senior awards that were chosen by the faculty at EHS. The highest honor is given with the Elsberry Indian Head which was bestowed upon Madison Leckbee. Other awards include, Outstanding senior given at graduation which went to Brooke Gray, followed by Outstanding Alumni boy and girl who were, Cain Sadler and Liberty Killian and finally the Lincoln County Journal outstanding senior was Brystal Jones.
