Twenty-three scholar athletes from Lewis-Palmer High School were honored at the Annual Rotary Champions Banquet May 2 at the Colorado Springs World Arena.

The Rotary Champions program is an annual event presented by the Rotary Clubs of the Pikes Peak Region and sponsored by KRDOTV NEWS 13 and Pepsi Cola.

This year's banquet marks the 23rd consecutive year the Rotary Champions Foundation has worked to assemble the finest scholar/athletes in the Pikes Peak Region.

The purpose of the event is to celebrate, recognize and reward those young men and women who exemplify the spirit of champions - excellence on the playing field, excellence in the classroom and excellence in the community.

Lewis-Palmer High School senior Kristen Hughes took home a medallion for girl's swimming and was given the Champions Scholar-Athlete of the Year Award for 2007.

Hughes has been swimming since she was about 4.

She has maintained a 4.0 grade-point average and has been involved in student government, this year serving as student body vice president.

This is the first time Lewis-Palmer has been awarded a Champions Scholar-Athlete of the Year since 1992.
