LaGRANGE — Four area students have been awarded the Hooper Knight Memorial Scholarship by the West Georgia Homebuilders Association.

This year the association is celebrating 29 years of awarding scholarships to local high school students who are pursuing careers in the building related field.

Along with their career goals, the student must be involved in various activities in school and their community and also be in the top 25 percent of their class.
