“Be who you are. You’ll go far in life.”

Those smart words came from Port St. Joe Jr./Sr. High School senior Carley Clements, who was the recipient of the Student of the Year award.

She wasn’t just the winner from Gulf County, but the entire state of Florida.

Clements received her award during the Florida Association of Student Councils conference held earlier this month in West Palm Beach.

Clements and the rest of the Student Government Council from PSJHS, which includes Nicolette Haddock, Caitlin Godwin and Morgan Butts, attended the annual event to participate in workshops and further develop their leadership skills.

At the close of the FASC conference Clements received the award in front of 600 other students.

“I was crying,” said Clements. “I was so shocked that it was me.”
