Bank of Little Rock Mortgage and the Cabot Panthers recognized two Cabot High School students on Friday, Oct. 25, during Cabot’s varsity football game against West Memphis High School.

The students were honored during the halftime presentation as a part of the Real Proud of Real Panthers, which is in its seventh year and sponsored by Bank of Little Rock Mortgage, to recognize hard-working students who are actively involved in their community and extracurricular activities. The students recognized were senior Megan Marshall and junior Molly Guzman.

Megan said she is planning to attend Ouachita Baptist University.

Molly Guzman is the daughter of Gillian and Willie Guzman. She has a 3.9 GPA and plays for both the school band and the Arkansas Symphony.
