Awards Night was held May 9, 2019 at Lewis County High School. It was announced that the Barbara J. Hinson Honorary Scholarship had been established. To keep the surprise, this scholarship was not awarded at that time. Hinson stated, “that after being speechless and totally surprised, she realized that this class of seniors were in kindergarten the last year she worked as principal before retiring. Since there was only one student who interviewed for scholarships that plans to go into Elementary Education, she knew she wanted to award this first scholarship to that student. So, Hayden Bass received the first Barbara J. Hinson Honorary Scholarship as he plans to pursue a degree in Elementary Education.
