SUNSHINE STATE SCHOLARS: Weeki Wachee High School junior Adam Cooper joined southwest Florida's highest-achieving science, technology, engineering and mathematics students who were honored recently in Orlando during the 2013 Sunshine State Scholars program. The two-day event celebrated the accomplishments of the students and provided a venue for Florida's colleges and universities to recruit them.

HERNANDO CHRISTIAN ACADEMY: The Class of 2013 hosted the school's third annual Valentine's Mystery Dinner on Feb. 16. Proceeds went toward the senior class trip. About $800 was raised, with about 90 guests attending. Money was raised through an auction of skills offered by seniors, including homemade authentic Chinese dinners, yard work, babysitting services, car detailing and works of art. The highest bid — more than $125 — went for a piece of art created by seniors Grace Li and Faye Zhang.

HERNANDO HIGH: Nick Hopkins has been selected to play for the west region in the Florida Athletic Coaches Association state all-star soccer game Friday and Saturday at the University of South Florida in Tampa. Hopkins also was named to the all-county boys soccer team for the second year in a row. He was the only male athlete selected this year from Hernando County to play in the all-star game.
