Each year, over 50 high school seniors are invited and recognized by Mayor Greg Fischer and the Kentucky Lottery Corporation. These students are is nominated by their school principal or high school senior counselor. Students who are selected not only demonstrate outstanding academic or athletic accomplishments, but also represent those who have developed strong character through community service, medical or family challenges or those who have overcome language, immigration or physical obstacles in pursuit of excellence in education and in their community.
Award recipients, family members and principals are invited to attend a special reception and ceremony to recognize the students and their achievements. This event brings community leaders, business leaders, educators, parents and today’s students – tomorrow’s leaders - together.
