The principal/headmaster and the athletics director from each school in Butler County select the nominees each year.

Then, through an exhaustive process, a panel of out-of-town judges selects the male and female recipients of the Achiever Award.

Additionally, the Achiever Award carries with it the presentation of a $3,500 scholarship, which is a one-time award to the male and female recipient to assist in defraying educational expenses.

“This year’s nominees are truly remarkable young men and women that excel both on and off the field,” said Greenville Area Chamber of Commerce Director, Tracy Salter.   “To receive nomination for this award is an honor – it’s a testament to how these students lead by example in church, community, athletics, and academics.” 

Winners of the Achiever Award have gone to excel in politics, law, medicine, education, and many other professions, as well as to become leaders in their communities.

The 2024 banquet will be held at the Wendell Mitchell Conference Center on the Campus of LBW Community College in Greenville on Thursday, May 2, at 7 p.m.
