Sumter School District's Teacher Forum awarded four high school seniors who desire to be future educators with college scholarship awards at its Celebration of Excellence event on Monday night at Crestwood High School.

Lakewood High School's Kaleigh Geddings took home the top honor by receiving the Hailey Bordeaux Scholarship for Future Educators in the amount of $3,000.

Fellow Lakewood seniors Angela Gipson and Rachell Harglerode and Crestwood High School's Ari'Elle Scott each received $1,000 scholarships from the district's Teacher Forum. All four plan to major in education in college.

Through money raised at various fundraisers this school year, the forum was able to offer all the scholarships, according to a spokesperson.
