Southside Lions Club President Colby McKinney presents GES 6th grader Sophie Shoemake with the Adam Hearn Academic Achievement Award

During Gordonsville Elementary School’s virtual 6th Grade Graduation ceremony on Tuesday, May 19, 2020, Miss Sophie Shoemake was presented with the Adam Hearn Academic Achievement Award. 

Each year, the Southside Lions Club recognizes a 6th grade student who has maintained the highest grade point average for the year. 

This award is given in honor and memory of Adam Hearn, son of Ben and Kathy Hearn of Gordonsville. Adam passed away at the age of 9 in April 1991. 

Sophie received a commemorative plaque and $100 from the Southside Lions Club. She will also have her named engraved on a permanent plaque at Gordonsville Elementary School, alongside past winners of the Adam Hearn Academic Achievement Award.

Congratulations, Sophie!
