Four Wayne County Schools Career Center students received certificates and a gift card from American Legion Post 68 for having the highest career center test scores on the American Legion Americanism test. Two juniors and two seniors were chosen to receive awards, as both classes are taking government classes.
 
Seniors honored were Sierra Moore of Burbank from culinary arts and Michael Cook of Wooster from welding. Moore is the daughter of Andrew and Angela Moore of Burbank, and Cook is the son of Jimmy and Christina Chupp of Wooster.
 
Receiving awards for the junior class were Kylie Miller of Doylestown from medical assisting and Chris Farlow of Dalton from interactive media. Miller is the daughter of Keith and Paula Miller of Doylestown, and Farlow is the son of Marko and Karen Farlow of Dalton.
 
Government teacher Kimberly Huffman said this is the 17th year the career center has participated in the testing program. The honors were presented by Otis Mekoleske in front of their instructors and peers.
 
The exam is given at schools throughout the United States, and a boy and girl in each grade level from sophomore to senior with the highest score advances to districts, regionals and then to the state level. State winners receive a free trip to Washington, D.C.
