Several teens pose on a staircase.Twenty-four seniors from Holston High School participated in the Washington County Community Scholars program.  These students collectively had an overall GPA of 3.54.

The HHS participants accumulated over 3,800 hours of service.  Several of these scholars distinguished themselves by going above and beyond the required service hours for the program.  These young leaders were recognized along with their peers from the county’s three other high schools at the Senior Washington County Community Scholars Celebration at the higher education center on Tuesday April 17th.

This small group’s selflessness has had a tremendous impact on the Damascus community. From doing yard work for the elderly to influencing the youth of Washington County through 4-H, GATE and Little League, this group’s service list is extensive and varied.  Group members have also demonstrated superior initiative. The organizations that have benefitted from their help included: Johnston Memorial Hospital, Marsh Blood Foundation, the Damascus Fire Department, the Damascus Library, the Washington County Fair Association, Grace Healthcare, the Creeper Trail Conservancy and the Holston River Soil and Water Conservation District.

Washington County Community Scholars for the Class of 2018 are:  Santanna A., Riley B., Jacob C., Leah C., Linsey C., Michael F., Andrew F., Matthew F., Tommy G., Cody H., Bailey L., Hayden L., Santana M., Seth M., Kagan M., Trayton M., Cody P., William P., Emma P., Bethany Q., Allen R., Diana S., Eve W., and Morghan W.
