Nine Students awarded Citizen Honors by Zephyrhills Chamber
Nine students from across the community were honored as the Greater Zephyrhills Students of the Month at a ceremony held at The Church at Chancey Road on November 20, 2019.
Students honored by the Zephyrhills Chamber’s Citizen of the Month program are chosen by the teachers and administration of their individual schools for exemplary effort, achievement and contribution to their school, family, and community.
The Zephyrhills Chamber has recognized students with this program each month of the school year for 21 years.
Students and their families are treated to breakfast and the students are awarded various gifts and recognitions from businesses that sponsor or support the program.
During the ceremony, the students are brought on stage individually for a brief interview and parents and teachers are invited to give words of encouragement for the student.
