High school student incentives

PARAGOULD, AR (KAIT) - Some students at Paragould High School earned a few hundred bucks for their success in school last year.

Paragould High School held an assembly on Friday, where it awarded 40 students who passed an Advanced Placement course last year.

Thanks to the Nidec Corporation in Paragould, the district awarded students who passed the Advanced Placement test $100 for every exam that they pass.

Paragould High School Principal Jeremy Mangrum said the students are very excited for this program.

"We had a great turnout and we had a really great response. Our students did really well on the exam and we plan to keep this going and make it an annual event that we will do.

Mangrum said he anticipates the program to grow even more once students see the dollar signs.
