Is there a deserving senior (class of 2015) you would like to nominate?
Peace Scholarships for one thousand dollars ($1,000) are available for students who are graduating this year. If you know of a senior who has contributed to promoting peace or understanding in our school, community or wider area you can nominate them for this scholarship. Numerous local congregations initiated this scholarship program several years ago as a means to promote peaceful, non-violent relationships in the schools and beyond. Outstanding efforts have been recognized each year, some for students who have been in such programs as multicultural clubs and student mentoring, and some for students who have acted in less formal settings to resolve conflicts or build cooperation. Any adult or student who works with any high school senior in any capacity in school or community may submit a nomination. The nominee is not required to be a member of any church or religious organization. A representative committee will select students to interview from those who are nominated. Awardees will be announced at the annual Scholarship Awards Night. Click here for a nomination form. Please submit any nominations to the Guidance Office by April 3, 2015
