They may be small, but the size of scholarship money handed out to them is anything but small.

Gestalt Community School's Power Center Academy High School has only 145 graduates in the Class of 2017. 

But those graduates have done impressive things - including racking up some big bucks for college.

Two of the top three graduates received full academic scholarships to Tennessee State University and the other top graduate received a scholarship to Howard University. 

Eight students received more than $1 million in scholarships each, earning $17.9 million total. The remaining 137 students earned a combined $12.1 million. 

The school holds a 100 percent graduation rate and this year's graduating class received over $30 million in college scholarship money.

Congratulations to all the graduates of PCAHS for a job well done!
