WXYZ Editorial: Celebrating 35 years of our "Brightest & Best!"

WXYZ Detroit - This weekend, and all summer long, we will salute the Brightest and Best students in our area. For 35 years now we’ve hosted this special event and celebrated these outstanding academic achievers. 

This year, about 250 students will be honored from nine different counties.  These young scholars deserve the public recognition they will be getting from our station.  They applied themselves, overcame challenges, and rose to the top of their graduating classes.  It is a proud moment for them, their families and friends, and this community as a whole.  We need to give them all of the support and encouragement they deserve. 

They are our future leaders and let’s hope that many of them will stay right here in Michigan.  We love home grown talent!  

We also thank Gardner White Furniture and the Michigan Education Savings Program for their generous support of this event.   And to the Brightest and Best of 2014, we at Channel 7 say take a bow for a job well done.  Your future is bright and you now have the opportunity to make it whatever you want.  Congratulations!

Ed Fernandez, Vice President & General Manager

Broadcast: May 9 - 11, 2014
