A student from each public school in Winston-Salem and Forsyth County, as well as from some private schools, will be honored Feb. 25 during the 30th annual Human Relations Student Awards Banquet.

The theme of this year’s banquet is "Pearls of Wisdom: Celebrating 30 Years." Entertainment will be provided by the Salem College Dance Company, the R.J. Reynolds High School Jazz Band and Asian Sensation, a classical music duo. Speakers at this year’s banquet will be Council Member Vivian H. Burke; Rob Stephens, a social activist and alumnus of Mount Tabor High School who participated in Human Relations Department programs; and Cameron Kent of WXII-TV, who will deliver the keynote address.
The banquet will be held at 6:30 p.m. at the Embassy Suites hotel, 460 N. Cherry St. Tickets are $25 and can be purchased at the Human Relations Department office in City Hall, 101 N.
