Pheleshia McEndree, a senior in the Hospitality & Facility Care Services program at the Belmont Career Center, was one of eleven students to receive the 2016 Belmont County Exceptional Student Award.
Pheleshia meets the true definition of class leader in both academics and in her lab. Despite some serious medical issues this year, she has maintained an "A" grade point average. She is hard-working, dedicated, trustworthy and dependable.
She also helps coordinate and implement the school's recycling program as part of her Environmental Science class. Pheleshia is not only an exceptional student, she is an exceptional role model for her peers.
