On June 22, 2009, two Mint Hill Eastern Star and Masonic Scholarship Awards in the amount of $2,000.00 each were presented to Jamie Porter and Hannah Heath by Melanie Carriker, Worthy Matron and Ken Carriker, Worthy Patron of Mint Hill Chapter #353 and John Trail, Master of Mint Hill Lodge #742. Jamie is the daughter of Paul and Katy Porter of Mint Hill. Hannah is the daughter of Richard and Deborah Heath of Mint Hill. Jamie and Hannah are recent graduates of Butler High School and were congratulated for being outstanding students in the community. These awards were made possible by an annual fish fry fundraiser.
Following the presentations, everyone gathered in the Mint Hill Masonic Lodge dining hall for fellowship and refrestments.
