On Thursday, Feb. 20, the Lake Oconee Elks Lodge recognized Sean Brown from Nathanael Greene Academy as one of the Lodge's recipients of the Most Valuable Student contest. Brown will receive a $1,000 scholarship to use to attend college next fall. Brown was unable to attend the Lodge's Scholarship Reception held on Sunday, Feb. 9 when the other six students were recognized for their achievements, so the Lodge made a special presentation for him. Students that attended the Feb. 9 reception were Mahnoor Sultan, Jessica Patino, Lauren Ellison, Michael Peters, Issac Newell and Susan Bishop. Congratulations to Brown and all the other previously recognized students. Pictured: Frank Rowan, left, Sean Brown and John White, right.
