The Adamson High School Scholarship Foundation provided 15 graduating W.H. Adamson High School seniors with $44,000 in scholarships to attend colleges and universities.
The 2018 honorees were announced at the school’s Awards Day Assembly on May 25 at the school.
“It’s a pleasure to continue the 71-year tradition of awarding worthy students at Adamson the opportunity to attend higher education,” Foundation Board President Bob Johnston said.
The scholarships range from $2,500 to $6,000 for four-year awards and are the result of applications to the fifteen-member foundation board. Applicants were interviewed by a special committee of the board, which made the award recommendations.
Since its inception in 1947, about 1,500 graduating seniors have received scholarships totaling $2 million. Scholarships are awarded to Adamson graduating seniors based on academic achievement and economic need.
