Olive Branch, Miss. (November 12, 2012) – Holly Larsen, a senior at Center Hill High School, has been named a C Spire Wireless Academic All-Stars Award winner.

C Spire Wireless will recognize more than 160 students during the 2012-2013 school year. Larsen and other weekly winners will be honored at a luncheon at the Hilton Memphis, Thursday, May 2, 2013.
Larsen is a dedicated student who has a passion for artistic expression. From studying literature and drawing out artistic interpretations, to communicating the feelings portrayed through dance, to singing in different languages, Larsen’s love of art is seen in her approach to life. She holds a 4.34 weighted grade point average and currently ranks third in the senior class. Larsen balances AP classes in English, history and science with ballet and choral performances.
As the National Honor Society president, Larsen is committed to working at a high level academically and setting an example for her peers. She has received more than 15 academic awards for highest performance in a class. Larsen has been Beta Club president, representative to the Student Council, and a member of the Interact Club and Fellowship of Christian Students.
The C Spire Wireless Academic All-Stars program was conceived to identify and recognize high school students for excellence in academics, school leadership and community service.
