Sixteen seniors from across the state have been selected as Lindy Callahan Scholar- Athletes for 2017. One of our own, Kaelyn Thompson, was chosen for this elite scholarship based on her academic achievements and participation in athletics and extracurricular activities.

Thompson will receive a $1500 scholarship from MHSAA with support of their partners including BankPlus, CSpire, and Mississippi Department of Human Services.

Pearl High School has had previous winners in past years including Wesley Welch, who went on to win the national award for 2009; however, Kaelyn is the first female from PHS to win the scholarship.

She will be recognized for her achievement at the 22nd annual luncheon on April 10th.
