The You Can Count on Me scholarship program is designed to recognize high school seniors who have a desire to pursue post-secondary education and/or training. Each Spring, ten students are chosen to receive a $2,500 scholarship. Additionally, a donation of $250 will be made to the teacher each recipient wishes to recognize.
The purpose of this scholarship is to provide financial support for students who have demonstrated a strong work ethic and who wish to pursue opportunities to better themselves through college courses and/or post-secondary training programs. Emphasis is placed on students who demonstrate that they can be truly "counted on" by their family, in their community, and in their schools.
The statement, You Can Count on Me serves as the overarching theme of this program. While academic success will be a consideration for these scholarships, it is not the primary consideration behind the selection process. This program seeks to reward and support students who have a “can do” attitude. Additional consideration is given to applicants who demonstrate a significant financial need, specifically, those students who might otherwise miss out on post-secondary opportunities due to financial limitations.
