The East Mississippi Business Development Corporation presented its annual Head of the Class awards to students at Ross Collins Career and Technical Center Monday.

The highest overall achievement award went to DeQuon Anderson who's studying health sciences. Brandon Lee, studying construction technology, received the most improved award.

"We think it's important that we be a part of the public schools in Lauderdale County and Meridian, and that we recognize those students that are high achievers and those are showing the most improvement in our career technical track programs," said Wade Jones, president of the EMBDC.
