The Edmonton Metcalfe County Chamber of Commerce proudly hosted the 26th Annual Senior Celebrity Banquet in the Old School Gym on April 12th. This project was instigated to honor outstanding Metcalfe County High School Seniors in the categories of art, band, athletics, aviation, drama, FFA, STLP, Academic Team, 4-H, HOSA, and academics. The recipient of the Chamber of Commerce’s $1,000 Scholarship was also included in the program.
The Celebrity Banquet would not be possible without the generous support of our sponsors. The sponsors for this year’s Senior Celebrity Banquet were A T & T, Farmers RECC, Tri-County Electric, Edmonton State Bank, Metcalfe County School System, and our newest sponsor Shuffett’s Adult Day Health.
