SSgt Nathaniel Knopes of the Marines recently presented awards to three Greenwood High School students as part of their annual initiative called the High School Awards Program. The awards recognize outstanding performances in academics, athletics, and music. All three fields exemplify the qualities that are inherent to the Marine Corps—smart, tough, and elite.

The Distinguished Athlete Award was presented to Grant Morgan, The Scholastic Excellence Award was presented to Claire Keisling, and the "Semper Fidelis" Award for Music Excellence was presented to Garrett Spain.
