According to Joanna Miller, Dallas County High School counselor, this is the largest number of students to receive scholarships in the 11 years she has been with the school.

That isn’t just a great accomplishment, it’s a mark all students can strive to beat in the future.

Selma and Dallas County don’t just produce graduates; they produce scholars.

Dallas County High School graduates will attend schools such as The University of Alabama and Auburn University as well as Miles College and Birmingham Southern College.

They’ve done their part. Now it’s time to do ours.

When the 2004 graduates receive their university diplomas, we need to give them something to return to. Selma and Dallas County is growing.

Hyundai suppliers are just the tip of the iceberg.

We believe more great things are on our horizon, and we want our high school graduates to return to us to participate in them.

By working together, we can provide a community our youth will want to return to.

Selma and Dallas County, we are already on our way to making that a reality.
