We’ve Chosen Finalists for Our 2019 Scholarship
Sheryl R. Rentz and her staff have been busy reviewing applications since the Key to a Bright Future Scholarship 2019 closed on April 30th. This opportunity was open to any aspiring high school or college student in good standing who explained how he or she intended to balance school, work, and life, much like Sheryl did as an engineer for AT&T while going to night school for law.
We’ve narrowed the race down to five students who impressed us very much with their passion, drive, and clear-sighted intelligence. We believe it’s important for young adults to be able to step back, take a breath, and then keep going. Congratulations:
- Haley R. – New York, NY
- Lauren B. – Weatogue, CT
- Bridget P. – Delaware, OH
- Adrianna P. – Sarasota, FL
- Stephanie F. – Monroeville, PA
Out of more than one thousand essays (1,001, to be exact!), yours stood out. We were pleased to get to know you a little and share in your dreams. Now, we have the hard task of choosing a winner. We will be announcing that winner on May 28, 2019, so check out our blog and Facebook page for updates.
To every student who applied, thank you. We appreciate your entries, and we wish you good luck in all your future endeavors. Stay positive both inside the classroom and outside, do what you love, and remember to take that time to balance yourself, because you’re one important resource that can’t ever be replaced! Please do apply again next year, if you’re still in school.
