Jones College and WDAM-TV honor JDC students in Top of Class 2021 

Jones College recently hosted WDAM-TV’s annual Top of Class recognition program, recognizing the Valedictorian and Salutatorians from 45 high schools in the Pine Belt. Jefferson Davis County High School Valedictorian Zaporia Betts and Salutatorian Danielle Hathorne participated in this year’s celebration, which was held in two sessions for health and safety purposes. Prentiss Christian School Valedictorian Brylee Holder and Salutatorian Kaelin Berry also participated in the event.

WDAM-TV news/weather personality Patrick Bigbie was able to pose for photos with some of the area’s valedictorians and salutatorians before duty called. The group of nearly 100 high school students were honored with a day of entertainment, speakers and brunch, in a COVID-19 safe environment

The WDAM-TV production crew videotaped the event to be featured during WDAM-Sunrise at 5:58 a.m., beginning May 17, through June 18, and on the WDAM-TV webpage. WDAM-TV and Jones College are sponsors of this event which honors the academic achievements of the Pine Belt’s top students.
