    The Greater Smithfield-Selma Area Chamber of Commerce held its second annual Academic Achievers Luncheon on March 31 at Johnston Community College to honor the top juniors from the Smithfield-Selma area high schools.  Students in attendance were recognized for their hard work and dedication that has allowed them to excel in their educational careers.

    Students from the five high schools that are members of the Chamber were invited to the luncheon based on their grade point average and size of their class. Schools participating were Smithfield-Selma High School, Johnston County Early College Academy, Johnston County Middle College, Princeton High School and Neuse Charter School.

    The luncheon, sponsored by Golden Corral, gave students the opportunity to network with business professionals in their anticipated fields of study. The career areas included medicine, law, education, computer science, engineering, public relations and business.  Representatives from several nearby universities were also present  and spoke to the students about the challenges of college life.

    The students each received a certificate of recognition for their academic accomplishments and enjoyed networking with fellow students during the luncheon.
