The Killona Queens honored R.K. Smith Middle and Luling Elementary students whose grades improved and who had positive behavior in school last year.

The group gave out trophies, awards and certificates of achievement to the winners.

Earlier this year, the group challenged area students to do their best in school and work hard, and some students took that challenge.

Terrell Jefferson was the overall winner at R.K. Smith, and was rewarded with a boombox. Second place went to Eric Jefferson and third went to Terrance Mitchell. Fourth place went to Danasha Harris and fifth went to Reva Mitchell.

At Luling Elementary, Jasmin Percy was the overall winner and was given a pink Nintendo DS. Second place winner De’Laijah Strickland was awarded with a new school bag. Other winners included Jeremiah Comminie, third place, Jamon Downing, fourth place, Anahja Hickerson, fifth place, Kayla Mitchelle, sixth place, and Alajza Woods, seventh place.

Pictured are the three top winners (right) and all of the winners (below).
