JONESBORO — Four Forest Park High School students were recognized by Clayton County Rotarians for their insight into the laws to living Wednesday.

The Clayton County Rotary Club recognized sophomore Stephanie Grant, freshman Kaitlyn McCullough, junior Abigail Dixon and senior Solomon Rodriguez. Each was the winner for their grade level, but Grant had the extra honor of being the overall winner.

High school students from across the county are invited to participate in the contest, but only Forest Park submitted entries. Forty-nine percent of the student body submitted essays, Rotary officials said.
