Institutional scholarships were awarded to 74 students, with several students receiving multiple awards. These scholarships are given by colleges, universities and vocational schools and are based on leadership and academic or athletic excellence. This year’s institutional scholarship amounts ranged anywhere from $600 to $53,000.
The Morgan Scholarship Board also presented 50 graduating seniors with local scholarships. These scholarships ranged from $750 to $2,000. Local scholarships are funded by the continued fundraising efforts of the Scholarship Board and many generous donations from individuals, families and local businesses. The total amount of local scholarships awarded this year was just over $53,000.
At the end of the night, the total amount of the scholarships awarded to graduates of the Class of 2013 was over $500,000. We congratulate each one of these fine students and wish them continued success in all of their future endeavors!
