Local businesses, organizations (including the Foundation), and families donated $1000 scholarships to each of the 19 deserving individuals.

While many students were continuing on to four year colleges and universities, several were pursuing specific vocational skills at nearby community colleges. From social work to physical therapy to elementary education, these high school seniors were all selected because of their passion and commitment to their education.

Originally, the Foundation was prepared to award only 16 scholarships, but the student applications were so overwhelmingly moving, that the local contributors were more than happy to donate funds so that more students could have an advantage in paying for their tuition.
