The Head of the Class program is for high school students participating in technical and career education from each of the city and county schools, grades 10-12.

Students are nominated by their teachers for the award of either “Highest Overall Career and Technical Student” or “Most Improved Career and Technical Student”.

The EMBDC Education Committee then selects the top two winners from each school and presents them with a certificate and a gas card, provided by Mississippi Power Company.

Each winner is also asked to write about a teacher or staff person from their school who has made the largest impact on their education.

At the end of the school year, the EMBDC will hold a breakfast honoring all of the winners from each semester, along with the educator they have chosen.
