    STRAWZELL

    Kelsi Strawzell, a 2009 graduate of Harrison County High School, has been named a Sen. Jeff Green Scholar. Students earn this designation by achieving a 4.0 grade point average all four years of high school and scoring at least a 28 composite on the ACT.

    The title honors the late state Sen. Jeff Green of Mayfield, who served in the Kentucky General Assembly from 1992 to 1997.

    As Sen. Jeff Green Scholars, these students are eligible for at least $2,500 a year in Kentucky Educational Excellence Scholarship (KEES) awards.
