A highlight of the NW Exchange convention was the presentation of the ACE award scholarship. ACE (Accepting the Challenge of Excellence) scholarship award of $1500 was presented to Shareeda Whitehurst. Winners of ACE have overcome major obstacles in their life to become a graduating senior. Winning the district award Shareeda now qualifies for the National competition with the potential to receive an additional $15,000 Scholarship. Congratulations Shareeda!
