Kiwanis Club awards Cabot seniors for academic excellence at banquet.

Cabot senior Mallory Styron is the recipient of three scholarships presented Thursday by the Kiwanis Club of Cabot during its 10th annual honor banquet for area students.

She was one of nearly two hundred juniors and seniors from the Cabot School District receiving academic achievement certificates for maintaining a cumulative grade point average above 3.5.

Styron was awarded the $1,000 Gale Carpenter Scholarship in honor of the first woman president of the Kiwanis Club of Cabot as well as being one of the first women in Kiwanis International; the $1,000 Mike Flowers Memorial Scholarship presented by Kiwanian Betty Flowers and the $750 Earl Collins Scholarship, awarded from the Missouri/Arkansas District of Kiwanis.

“We’re just so proud of her it’s inexpressible,” said Styron’s father Kevin. “She’s worked hard.”
The Kiwanis Club hosts the banquet each year to recognize the district’s top students and to encourage academic excellence in the Cabot school system.

For the past 10 years, the Kiwanis Club of Cabot has endeavored to encourage students to achieve academic excellence and be involved in community service through youth organizations such as K-Kids at Eastside Elementary, Central Elementary, Ward Central Elementary, Magness Creek Elementary and Northside Elementary; Builders Clubs in Cabot Middle School North, Cabot Middle School South, and Cabot Junior High School North as well the Key Club at Cabot High School.

“It’s good to be recognized by an organization like Kiwanis,” said Cody Wilson, senior class president.
Keynote speaker Horace Smith of the Office of Desegregation Monitoring in Little Rock, told the students for successful future, they had to keep in mind the ABCs of attitude, behavior and character.

“You can believe all you want but you have to do something about it,” Smith said. “When difficulties come you have to persevere, keep trying and working. That’s what character is all about. Awards can fade but having character lasts forever.”
