SHERMAN, TX -- Seven Sherman High School students were honored Thursday night for their academic achievement.
The students were the chosen few in the Sherman Education Foundation's Circle of Success. Teachers nominated them based on character, leadership and service -- qualities organizers say follow the kids well after high school.
The students weren't the only ones recognized, they each chose an educator who inspired them.
"Just to honor good hard work, character, service, leadership. These kids need to be honored for their great dedication," Sherman Education Foundation board member, Jennifer Shelby, said.
