Afterwards, the Chamber will award scholarships in these same categories. For over 40 years, Chamber members have encouraged students to think beyond high school and continue to dream! Join us as we continue the tradition of recognizing these exceptional students from our county schools. 

Students will be honored from the following schools: 

  • Central High School
  • Hernando High School
  • Nature Coast Technical High School
  • Springstead High School
  • Weeki Wachee High School

Last year the Chamber recognized 49 of Hernando County’s outstanding and emerging leaders and awarded over
$11,000 in scholarships thanks to community businesses and leaders with a passion for Education.
Be a part of history in the making!
