RICHMOND, Va., June 10 /PRNewswire/ -- For the 15th year Lexus of Richmond has participated in recognizing one outstanding high school senior scholar-athlete for the Annual Lexus of Richmond Pursuit of Perfection Leadership Award. 

Thirty students were finalists in this competition, and each week over the school year, nominees were featured on FOX 35 Richmond and radio station WRVA 1140. Highlights included their scholastic and athletic achievements and their community activities. All the finalists demonstrated total commitment to hard work both in the classroom and on the field of play. Additionally, nominees were all featured in Richmond Magazine.   

The Annual Banquet was held at The Mill at Fine Creek. Selecting just one winner from this group of high achievers was no easy task, but in the end, Ted Gottwald of St. Christopher's School was presented the $10,000 Scholarship in the 15th Annual Lexus of Richmond Pursuit of Perfection Leadership Award. The banquet speaker was William "Bill" Mims, Virginia Supreme Court justice. 

George W.

In our hearts, the entire team at Lexus of Richmond knows that all of these young folks are winners." 

This year Lexus of Richmond also allowed local community members to pick their favorite candidate on Facebook. The winner, Philip Rohrer won an iPad, but voting was so close that second place finisher, Darren McLeod was given a $250 Apple gift card as well.

Steve Adams from Clear Channel Radio-Richmond shared, "WRVA is proud to honor these outstanding students in the Central Virginia area each year, and just as proud to have partnered with Lexus of Richmond for all fifteen years of the scholarship program!"
