Meet winning Eagles

Ellen, Class of 2016 - $25,625

“Talk yourself up because you are fantastic in some way.  You really just need to find what’s unique about you.”

 Justin, Class of 2016 - $18,690

“Work hard.  It’s not like they give scholarships out to everyone, so you really have to set yourself apart from the rest of the crowd.  That’s through your GPA and your school work.  That’s through working jobs throughout summer.  A lot of it just comes down to doing stuff for yourself and bettering yourself personally.  Just put the time in and it will pay off."

Laikyn, Class of 2018 - $2,500

“Always set out to look for them and be honest in them.  I think people that give scholarships are always looking for that honesty in a student and that determination to be as best we can.  So I would say to be determined for them and apply, because you never know if it could be you.”

Morgan, Class of 2019 - $6,880

“Sell yourself in the most real way that you can.  But be sure to highlight your good qualities.  Convince them that their sending (donating) their money to a good cause.”


Emma, Class of 2021 - $11,900

"Keep applying because at some point you are going to get some financial assistance and there is nothing better than that, especially since someone picked you because they believe in you and think that you can be successful. Scholarships have lessened the financial stress, encouraged me to be the best student I can be."

Jenelle, Class of 2022 - $16,500Jenelle Higgins.jpg

"Apply for as many as you can and keep applying because there is no harm and it doesn't take that much time. Don't get discouraged if you don't win anything right away because there are scholarships year round you can keep trying for."
