Brightest and Best Logo 2021.png


Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, most area high schools will be hosting awards ceremonies and even graduations differently.  We have so many “Brightest and Best” students in the area who need to be properly recognized.

WJXT and High School 9:12 have partnered and once again created a “Brightest and Best” senior celebration program for deserving seniors to be recognized in a very public forum through live television and livestream elements, with a recognition event as well.  Throughout the evening news broadcast, a one-hour special on WJXT and a recognition event, the “Brightest and Best” will receive a great send off as they enter their next phase of life.
