The 2015 Paul M. Grist Boy of the Year and the 2015 Delta Kappa Gamma Girl of the Year programs Tuesday recognize the hard work and accomplishments of dozens of local high school seniors.

The candidates are selected from seniors in area high schools who excel in Christian leadership, scholastics, athletic achievements and extracurricular activities.

There are 14 nominations for Boy of the Year and 19 for Girl of the Year. These students have shown what it takes to be outstanding young adults and we applaud them in their achievements.
