A Top Gun and a Top Driver award are also given to each graduating class.  The Top Gun award went to Aaron McBroom while the Top Driver award was given to Erik Johnson.

Special thanks go to the following sponsoring agencies from which these students represented:  Badin Police Department (PD), Stallings PD, Stanly County Sheriff’s Office, Monroe PD, Mint Hill PD, Locust PD, Anson County Sherriff’s office, Watauga County Sheriff’s Office, Albemarle PD, and Norwood PD.
