Lake Havasu High School seniors were awarded for their hard work Monday at the LHHS Evening of Excellence.

Students received more than $5.2 million in scholarships from many local service organizations as well as from their chosen institutions of higher learning.

“Our local community groups, clubs and businesses are awarding over $129,000. That’s so awesome. We have a beautifully supportive, giving community and we appreciate them,” said Cali George of the LHHS Career Center.
