FFE High School Student Awards
In addition to the Eve Carson Humanitarian Spirit Awards which are presented yearly at every school, the Foundation also recognizes ten students each spring at the two traditional high schools.
The Gregg W. Lewis Scholar Athlete Awards honor Gregg Lewis, an athlete and scholar who was a 1988 graduate of Clarke Central High School. Mr. Lewis lived the example of being both an athlete and a scholar while serving our country in the military. This award was created in his memory and is given to one male and one female graduating senior, $500 each, in the Clarke County School District who have participated in athletics all four years and have lettered in at least one sport. Of the candidates meeting these criteria, the two students (one male and one female) with the highest GPAs are chosen. If there is a tie in GPAs, the award will be based on rank in class. The two runners-up are recognized with $250 each.
