BERKELEY COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - The Berkeley County School District honored its top champions in the classroom by hosting the 16th annual Breakfast of Champions Tuesday morning.
The event recognized top students in the areas of academics, service and leadership.
"To me, leadership isn't something you just do after school, the number of clubs you join or the awards you receive," said Courtney Pourciaux, a senior at Goose Creek high. "I think it really has to do with the relationships you form. This really means a lot to me, more than any other award I've received because I was nominated by the faculty and staff of my school."
In all, 56 students and nine teachers were honored from the district's nine high schools.
