  • The Kiwanis Club of Helena West Helena held their annual Honor Reception for the honor graduates of Central High School, DeSoto and KIPP. The students and parents attending the reception were treated to a dinner, received certificates of achievement and gift sacks with discount cards, free coupon cards and merchandize from area businesses. Kiwanis President Dana Chadwick presented the John Lueken Jr. Memorial Essay Award to Laura Leoppard of DeSoto for her essay on "The American Dream.” The George Andrews Memorial Scholarship Award for outstanding character and academic achievement was presented to Keendra Reed of Central High School. The keynote speaker was Dr. Jim Fouse from South Arkansas Community College in El Dorado. Dr. Fouse spoke on how to get to college and what to do when you get there. The speaker's final words were "Never lose sight of your goal, as well as study smarter, not harder.”
