HAVRE, Mont. (NMB) – Earlier this week, Havre Public Schools Education Foundation (HPSEF) held a drive-in and virtual award ceremony to honor and distribute scholarships to high school seniors.
HPSEF Chairman Kyle Leeds presented scholarships to 23 students from Havre High School and North Star High School for their great academic achievement, high participation in school and community activities and for their need of academic financial assistance.
To make sure students and board members kept social distancing standards, Leeds announced that only four students would be able to retrieve their awards at a time.
As each student rose to accept their award, parents, family members and friends showed their support by honking their horns loudly for each deserving recipient.
