The Apollo-Ridge Education Foundation Scholarship was established in 2018 to provide financial assistance to individuals who are enrolled in an institution of higher learning (college, university, trade school, technical school, etc.). Preference will be given to students who volunteered for Apollo-Ridge Education Foundation’s activities or those endorsed by the Foundation.
Bre, a high honor roll student with extensive volunteer experience, received the very first scholarship offered by the Education Foundation. She not only excelled in the classroom, but was recognized for her impressive athletic abilities in track and soccer. Bre is enrolled at the University of Akron to study civil engineering. Her 10-year plan includes using the knowledge she acquires in college to improve infrastructure in developing countries.
Elizabeth, a high honor roll student with extensive volunteer experience, was chosen as this year’s $1000 scholarship recipient. Her resume reflects a student who is committed to her school and community through multiple activities, many of which included leadership roles. For very personal reasons, Elizabeth chose nursing as a career goal and was accepted at the University of Pittsburgh to begin her studies.
The Foundation’s Third Annual Scholarship recipient, Victoria Querry, was chosen from a field of eight applicants for her outstanding resume, desire to enter into a STEM +A-Rts career, clear understanding of the Mission and Vision of the Education Foundation, and a very persuasive essay.
Victoria will attend Messiah College to study Music Education.
