Franklin High School seniors Teresa Chamblee and Lauren Causey are this year’s recipients of FHS’s Soucek Memorial English Scholarships. Chamblee received the English Achievement Award of $1,000 and Causey received the English Excellence Award, also $1,000.

The scholarships are named for former FHS English Teacher Linda P. Soucek, and are awarded to students who best exemplify not only academic achievement and presentation skills — particularly in English — but also set an example for others as to disciplined perseverance in reaching personal goals, always with a positive, constructive attitude that inspires.

Those were the attributes of the late Soucek, who died in 2013.
