Southern Local High School senior Emily Walker (right) and teacher Alyssa Lockhart (left) were recently touted by the Columbiana County Educational Service Center during their recent Heads Above the Rest recognition. Walker, the daughter of Steve Walker and Rob and Shannon Marra of Summitville, was honored as the school’s Franklin B. Walter All-Scholastic Award nominee and received a $100 scholarship. The award, which was established by the Ohio Educational Service Center Association (OESCA), is based upon outstanding academic achievement and the CCESC hosted nominees from each school and announced the county’s scholarship recipient. Meanwhile, Lockhart was nominated last year by student Samuel May as a STAR Educator for her dedication to student learning. (Submitted photos)
