THE FLORALA NEWS - THURSDAY, MAYI @ Monday, May 26, was a really big night for deserving seniors at Florala High School. Rather than to prolong that long- awaited graduation by giving awards, scho- larships and special recognition to seniors on this night, FHS has, the past two years, had what they have dubbed Senior Awards night. This is becoming a very special oc- casion and is attended by seniors, their parents, and close friends. FHS Principal Charles Stevenson pre- sented dozens of general school awards to seniors for excellence in various sub- jects, perfect attendance, helpfulness, etc. Note these students pictured on this page.
