The topic of education in Louisiana is one that is highly debated and often the subject of criticism. While we do have challenges regarding education in our state, we can't lose sight of the success stories and the positive steps forward.

For that reason, WAFB is proud to honor the top graduating seniors of the class of 2011. More than 90 of the best and brightest students in our community will be highlighted throughout the summer in our annual "Best of the Class" vignettes.

It takes a lot of hard work and dedication to be in that number. And, this year, we will air a special behind-the-scenes look at our annual event. We'll hear from parents and guardians, whose sacrifice and support provide the foundations necessary for these students to realize their potential.

Please join us on June 2 at 6:30 p.m. as we honor the best of the class. It's 30 minutes that's sure to leave you feeling inspired and hopeful about our future.
