Each year, The News-Journal celebrates the outstanding work of area high schools through its Medallion of Excellence Awards program. High school seniors in Volusia and Flagler County (in high schools with more than 25 students in the 2015 graduating class) were encouraged to apply for an award. Medallion of Excellence award-winners are students who not only achieve academic scholarship but who also stand out in extracurricular and community activities in areas including -- but not limited to -- the arts, sports, volunteerism and/or leadership. Winners were determined by a panel of education professionals and were honored at a banquet.
