Kendell Hawkins of Susan Moore and Fowler Joiner of Lexington were named outstanding female and male students at the 2008 Alabama Governor's School (AGS), which ended Friday (June 27) at Samford University.

They were chosen by AGS students, faculty and staff on the basis of participation and overall interest shown during the two-week program for academically gifted rising high school seniors.

Hawkins, daughter of Sonya and Jeff Hawkins, attends Susan Moore High School in Blount County.

Joiner, son of Kelley and Willie Joiner, attends Lexington High School in Lauderdale County.

A total of 78 students from high schools in 27 counties attended AGS.
