Bank of Little Rock Mortgage and the Cabot Panther Foundation recognized two high school seniors during the Nov. 22 Cabot High football game during this season’s playoffs. The students recognized were seniors Wade Warren and Becca Moffett.
The students were honored at the game as a part of the Real Proud of Real Panthers program, which is in its seventh year and is sponsored by the Cabot branch of Bank of Little Rock Mortgage to recognize hard-working students who are actively involved in their community and extracurricular activities.
Wade Warren, son of Wayne and Normandy Warren, is a member of the National Honor Society, Spanish Honor Society, Mu Alpha Theta and AP Academy. He was given the Kiwanis Honor Student recognition award and has received a superior rating from the National Federation of Music where he has showcased his talent for piano. Warren has also earned the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission’s Triple Trophy Award.
"Wade is the most positive person I’ve met," said teacher Dwight Daugherty. "He does anything asked with a smile."
Warren said he is planning to attend Ouachita Baptist University where he wants to major in pre-med or chemistry.
Becca Moffett, daughter of Becky Moffett, plays for the high school volleyball team and is involved in the National Honor Society, French Club and AP Academy. She was recently named a Cabot High School Hero and supports several community outreach programs such as Cabot Clean-Up, Diapers for Cash and the Literacy Project.
"Becca is incredibly focused on her academic achievement, ranking very near the top of a class of 686 students," said Daugherty, who also teaches Moffett. "She always gives her very best effort."
Moffett said she is planning to attend Louisiana State University to major in veterinary medicine.
During the presentation, Steve Jackson, manager of the Cabot branch of Bank of Little Rock Mortgage, presented each student with an award plaque. He also presented the Cabot Panther Foundation a check for $250 in the names of each student and to congratulate Cabot High School’s entry into the playoffs.
During the school year, the Cabot branch of Bank of Little Rock Mortgage will contribute $100 for each student honored, culminating in more than $3,000 this year, to the Cabot Panther Foundation to help provide scholarships for students in the Cabot school district.
