LAURINBURG — Seniors at Scotland High School were awarded millions of dollars in scholarships during the school’s annual Senior Awards program.

Professional and civic organizations handed out 55 scholarships Tuesday to go along with academic scholarships and special award recipients during the almost two-hour ceremony.

In total, seniors received more than $2.5 million in scholarship money, a number that is likely to increase as the winners of some scholarships will not be announced until after the school year ends.

Scotland High School interim principal Cory Satterfield said the scholarships were a culmination of years of hard work by the Class of 2017.

“This is a celebration of the 13 years they’ve been in school,” Satterfield said. “I’ve thoroughly enjoyed this year and I wish you all nothing but the best on your next journey.”

The following seniors were recognized during the awards ceremony:
