BENTONVILLE, Ark. (KFTA) — The Bentonville Kiwanis Club held a Youth Excellence Awards luncheon to honor kids in the Benton County area for their community and school accomplishments.
A total of 18 Benton County students were honored, and Rep. Steve Womack (R – 3rd District) was the keynote speaker.
The event took place at Fulbright Junior High School.
“A couple of months ago the leadership of the Kiwanis Club asked me if I would come give some remarks to the young people and of course it was acceptable with my calendar and i jumped at the chance,” Womack said.
This is the 32nd year that the Bentonville Kiwanis Club has honored students from Benton County.
