Three area high school seniors were honored during the better business bureau's "torch awards".
They received the "student of integrity" scholarship.
One of those winners was senior Anthony Desalvo. As a freshman, Desalvo fought to keep block-scheduling at Davenport North High School. He ended up starting a campaign to fight for equal funding at Iowa's schools.
"It's a huge, huge honor. love the organization, I know they do a ton for businesses around here and I am so appreciative of this honor," Desalvo said.
