The coveted Annenberg Scholarships were awarded this week....and there are only 10 each year nationwide.
And, unbelievably, two of them went to Soddy-Daisy high school students.
Students, Teachers and school district leaders gathered this afternoon to congratulate rising seniors Zachary Egger and Amanda Stewart.
They received the 4 year scholarships, with all expenses paid to any college they want to attend.
