MT. VERNON — — Two area school districts have been honored with a Bright Star Award of Excellence.
The awards, given by SchoolSearch, are given to districts whose students' academic performance ranks in the upper third of Illinois school districts, but whose expenditure per student is in the lower quarter of districts.
Summersville Grade School and Waltonville High School have been honored.
