With 11 participating schools and 76 student nominations made by school guidance counselors, 32 students were named Paducah Bank Teens of the Week this year, receiving special recognition for their outstanding academic achievements and exemplary character. Their stories published each week in The Paducah Sun from September to April, and they were recognized Monday night at an awards ceremony in the Carson Center's River Room.

On Monday night, Paducah Tilghman High School senior Grace Raber was presented the Paducah Bank Teen of the Year title, as well as a $5,000 scholarship.

A $1,000 scholarship was also presented Monday evening to Thomas Dean Simmons of McCracken County High School, who was chosen as this year's Inspirational Award winner.
