The Canton Public School District salutes its Mississippi Scholars for their outstanding achievements. The district thanks Nissan North America of Canton for honoring these scholars with a $500.00 scholarship for their hard work.

The purpose of the Mississippi Scholars Program is to encourage students to take more challenging courses in high school.  All national data indicates that students with a more rigorous academic schedule of high school studies are better prepared for college and/or to enter today's competitive job market. The requirements include 40 hours of community service, a 2.5 cumulative GPA, 95-percent attendance, 16 ACT composite score, and NO outside suspensions. Graduating seniors recognized as MS Scholars receive a $500.00 scholarship from Nissana medallion and a decal on their diploma. CPSD commends these students for their outstanding achievements.
