It’s that time of year when graduating high school seniors are receiving the scholarships they’ll use to defray the cost of continuing their education. Here are some recent awards.
• Cellcom has selected 16 graduating high school seniors from across its service area to receive $750 scholarships, including Anna Olson of Southern Door High School and Miranda Gregory of Sturgeon Bay High School.
“Cellcom is proud to award scholarships to a remarkable group of students who have already made an impact in their communities,” said Cindy Durand, Cellcom’s senior director of public affairs.
Recipients were selected based on community involvement, academic record, potential to succeed, leadership and participation in school activities, honors, work experience and an essay about community impact. Applicants were also required to reside in a county where Cellcom operates and be planning to enroll in a full-time undergraduate course of study at an accredited institution.
• The Door County Environmental Council/Door Property Owners awarded its 2022 annual scholarship to Gabriela Moreno, a Sevastopol High School graduate, in the amount of $1,500. She will be studying biology at Northern Michigan University this fall.
• Nsight Teleservices has selected seven graduating high school seniors from across its service area to receive $1,200 scholarships, including Collin Grota of Southern Door High School. The selection criteria were the same as for the Cellcom scholarships (above).
