The Missoula Exchange Club will honor seven local high school seniors with the ACE (Accepting the Challenge of Excellence) Award on Thursday. The awards banquet will take place from 11:45 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the DoubleTree Inn.
Each of the following students will receive a $250 scholarship, and an additional $250 will be awarded to the overall winner chosen by a committee): Morgan Taapken, Alberton High School; Diego Steele, Sentinel High School; James Bollen, Valley Christian High School; Asley Mix, Hellgate High School; Sheila Emry, Big Sky High School; Brook Petersen, Willard High School; and Jessica Stoneman, Frenchtown High School.
The program recognizes students who have made a dramatic change in their attitude and performance during their high school years to overcome adversities and prepare for graduation. Winners at the district level have an opportunity to compete for the National ACE Award.
