The Augusta Chronicle Names Best and Brightest

The Augusta Chronicle recognizes 20 outstanding students in the Class of 2020: those who have been selected for the 18th annual Best & Brightest Awards. Applicants are evaluated on academic performance, character, community service, leadership and extracurricular activities as well as a nomination letter and an interview.

Congratulations to Brayden Poorvin of North Augusta High School for making the list!
