The ceremony was held in the University Center Ballroom on the campus of Southeast Missouri State University in Cape Girardeau. Corporate sponsors for this year's Heartland's Best are:

All Heartland valedictorians and their parents were invited to the ceremony. Students who attended the event recorded greetings that will be featured in special announcements scheduled to air throughout the summer on KFVS12 and The Heartland's CW.

Valedictorians from four states were treated to lunch with featured speakers Mary-Ann Maloney and Jeff Cunningham of KFVS12's Heartland News, and Dr. Carlos Vargas, President of Southeast Missouri State University. Mollie Lair, also with Heartland News, helped introduced each valedictorian and highlighted their individual honors and achievements. KFVS12's Director of Marketing, Paul Keener, served as master of ceremonies.

"I always look forward to the Heartland's Best Banquet," stated Maloney. "It's truly inspiring to meet and honor young people from all over the Heartland who've worked so hard."

"Of all the public service events we sponsor each year, this is one of our favorites," said Keener. "It involves positive young people who've worked hard to be the best of their class. We hope, that by honoring their efforts, we'll help inspire other Heartland students."

This is the 31st anniversary of the Heartland's Best campaign on KFVS12.
