A Heartland Career Center student and a local organization will both be honored later this month at the Indiana Department of Education’s Awards for Excellence Recognition Program.

The student, Madison France, and the organization, the Community Foundation of Wabash County, were nominated for the awards by Heartland director Mark Hobbs. They will be honored along with other recipients from around Indiana during a Feb. 26 ceremony at the Indiana Government Center Auditorium in Indianapolis.

A second-year student in Heartland’s criminal justice program, Madison was selected because of her excellent academic record, Hobbs told The Paper of Wabash County.
