The Pine Belt's high achieving high school students were honored Wednesday during WDAM-TV and Jones County Junior College's "Top of Class" Presentation.

The long running annual program recognizes the area's valedictorians and salutatorians. Students were treated to a breakfast at JCJC President Jesse Smith's home, in addition to entertainment and some words of wisdom from WDAM-TV's News Director, Randy Swan.

Each member of the "Top of Class" was also offered a full, all expenses paid scholarship to attend Jones County Junior College.

Jesse Smith said, "What we'd like for the students that are here to see is that this is no ordinary two year college. The junior name surely is deceiving, there is nothing junior about it. This is a world class institution and so we want folks to know about it."

WDAM and JCJC's "Top of Class" special airs May 22nd at 6:30 PM and on May 30th at 10:30 PM.

    Following a school-record 55 wins and run that ended in an 8-7 loss in the NJCAA national championship, Jones County Junior College softball is eager to open the 2018 season on February 3. Coming that close to the school’s first national title serves as motivation enough for the Lady Bobcats. Regardless, expectations are always high for coach Chris Robinson’s teams – JCJC is a combined 105-12 the last two seasons.
