Zi Hughes represents East as the Carl DeBrew Hero recipient.
 Nineteen students were honored on October 27th for their courage and strength of character in the Carl DeBrew Heroes Program sponsored by the Cleveland County Schools Educational Foundation at the LeGrand Center.

The student Heroes were selected by their schools for being successful while coping with learning disorders, physical handicaps or other circumstances. The Foundation teamed with Laughlin Furniture Outlet to recognize inspirational students in Cleveland County Schools. Each Hero received a personalized medallion, certificate, and a t-shirt.

"The Educational Foundation's Carl DeBrew Hero Awards is one of the most touching events we offer each year," says Dr. George Litton, president of the Educational Foundation. "Mr. John Laughlin of Laughlin Furniture is a great benefactor to our students and we sincerely appreciate his assistance in making sure the programs are possible each year."
