Mabank seniors win awards, scholarships
By Pearl Cantrell
Monitor Staff Writer

MABANK–Friends and family congratulated Mabank High School seniors on the many accomplishments they achieved throughout their four years of high school during a senior awards ceremony May 14 held at the school. The community added their recognitions with the giving out of scholarships from funds each group worked hard to collect.
In addition, Trinity Valley Community College gave out 24 tuition assists in the form of $1,800 to those in the top 10 percent of their class.
Four students were given between $80,000 and $100,000 in scholarship funding from the U.S. Air Force, Army and Marine Corps.
All awards totaled $442,950 for Mabank students from the class of 2012.
Principal Brad Koskelin introduced this year’s Valedictorian Max Irion and Salutatorian Alison Mitchell. (Read more about them on the cover of the May 17 issue of The Monitor.)
Max is the son of Denise and Jeffrey Irion and plans to attend the University of Hawaii at Manoa to study global environmental science.
Alison is the daughter of Darlene and Eugene Mitchell and she plans to major in music education at Northwestern State University. Under her leadership, the Mabank Drum line achieved the highest ranking it has ever achieved.
Graduation is set for 7:30 p.m. Thursday, May 24, at the Garland Special Events Center.
