Dozens of high-achieving students in the East Jasper Consolidated School District were recognized at an awards program at Heidelberg High School Tuesday morning.

The students received T-shirts or awards for their advanced or proficient rankings on state test scores from the past two years.

"I'm proud of my friends and family," we're all proud," said Kaitlyn James, a 9th grade student who achieved advanced scores. "We tried our hardest and it got us somewhere," she said.

"I'm very proud of my school district," said Breanna Gamble, a 12th grader, who had both proficient and advanced scores. "We are doing good and moving forward and we will be a successful school," she said.

The program was dedicated to the memory of Tarvis Simmons, a 9th grader who had high test scores before dying in an accident two years ago.
