The Greenville Area Chamber of Commerce and the Greenville YMCA will name the 2012 Achiever Award winners on Thursday night.

Two out of the 23 candidates will receive the prestigious award and the accompanying $1,500 scholarships.

This annual award, now in its 15th year, is designed to recognize the outstanding senior male and female athletes of Butler County’s four high schools who also exemplify the attributes of Christian, community and academic leadership.

To be nominated for the award is an honor in itself. With such demanding schedules, these students find time to not only improve upon their own personal qualities, but also to find ways to give back to the community.

These outstanding students have been taught by many of those in the community, and it is satisfying that we can produce such great individuals who will in their turn teach the children of tomorrow to follow in their footsteps.

The award says a lot about these students, and their devotion not only to growing as individuals, but giving back to those who helped them succeed.

Only one male and one female will be chosen for the top awards, but all of these students are “achievers” and we should be proud of them for their dedication and service to Butler County.
