The Walton County School District has recognized South Walton High School student Fisher Marks, who has earned the 2020 Sunshine State Scholar award.

The Sunshine State Scholar program is sponsored by the Florida Lottery, which also sponsors the Bright Futures scholarship programs.

Fisher is among the state’s top 11th-grade students in the areas of science, technology, engineering and mathematics. He is the son of Daniel and Wendy Marks of Inlet Beach.

Mark your calendar for some great pancakes and a chance to support the Fort Walton Beach High School Air Force Junior ROTC cadets.

On Jan. 25 from 7:30-10 a.m., the Magnolia Grill will host the breakfast that includes smoked sugar sausage, all-you-can-eat pancakes, orange juice and coffee.

The cadets will act as special guest servers, and they have chosen the Air Force Enlisted Village as the recipient of the community service sharing opportunity.

A minimum donation of $7 per person is requested, and 100 percent of all funds raised go toward the FWBHS JROTC and Enlisted Village.

The Magnolia Grill, owned and operated by Tom and Peggy Rice, is at 157 Brooks St. S.E. in Fort Walton Beach.
