Zhamarius Harmon, a junior at Putnam City High School and a cadet in the school’s Air Force Junior ROTC, has received a scholarship to attend an accredited aviation university participating in a private pilot license training program this summer.
Harmon is one of 150 Air Force Junior ROTC cadets around the world, and three in Oklahoma, to receive the scholarship from Headquarters Air Force Junior ROTC, Maxwell Air Force Base, Montgomery, Alabama.
The number of Putnam City High cadets chosen for the scholarship may increase. Caleb King, a junior at Putnam City High, was chosen as an alternate for the scholarship and could be called to replace one of the original recipients who is unable to attend the training.
PC North council honored
The National Association of Student Councils has named Putnam City North High School’s student council as a National Council of Excellence for 10 consecutive years.
“It is an honor to be recognized by the NASC as one of its longstanding Councils of Excellence," said Shane Wilson, president of Students United at North (SUN), the student council at Putnam City North. "I know we appreciate the recognition of our hard work and are also humbled by the honor of serving a council with such a rich history of leadership and service.”
Each year the award recognizes exemplary records of leadership, service and activities by student councils across the country. Winning student councils have strong year-round programs and work to improve their schools and communities.
