The South Lake Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors voted unanimously to name the Outstanding Student Leader Award in honor of Clermont City Council Member, Ray Goodgame.
The Ray Goodgame Outstanding Student Leader Award was developed to honor students in the South Lake area that not only excel in academics but additionally in service and leadership within their school and community. The award honors Goodgame’s memory and constant commitment to the South Lake community through education and volunteerism.
South Lake Chamber of Commerce President & CEO, David Colby said, “The Chamber is proud to remember Ray’s legacy as a champion for our community by naming this prestigious academic award after him.”
The first scholarship will be awarded to a student from Montverde Academy at the September 20 Chamber Breakfast. The award will also be given to deserving students from East Ridge High School, Lake Minneola High School, Real Life Christian Academy and South Lake High School throughout the school year.
