Watson’s win in the 100 cemented her place atop the Lady Tornado history books, becoming the only women’s sprinter in school history to win four state championships in the event.

Seniors in Paducah's three most-attended high schools - McCracken County, Paducah Tilghman and St. Mary - received $31.16 million in scholarship offers this year, an indicator of the academic and athletic skills shown by local students.

McCracken County seniors pulled in $17.1 million in scholarship offers to 390 students, for an average of $43,846 per student.

"Many of the scholarships that students received were merit-based and earned off of their grade-point average and ACT scores," said Megan Bolin, McCracken college and career counselor. "Other students were offered scholarships from programs they participated in during the summer, like the Governor's Scholars Program, Governor's School for the Arts or the Commonwealth Honors Academy.

"Businesses in the local community reach out to us and send us the applications, and we post them on the school website. A lot of local scholarships require letters of recommendation from teachers as well."

Paducah Tilghman seniors garnered $11.5 million in scholarship offers - a school record -offered to 92 students for an average of $125,000 per student.
