Each recipient will receive a $1,000 scholarship to put toward their college education and related expenses. The three winners were selected by their teachers, counselors and a variety of people who witnessed their academic and personal growth. They also had to submit personal essays detailing future educational goals.
"The Higher Horizons scholarship is critical for our students, as it lessens the impact of tuition costs," said Ophelia King, School Counseling Curriculum Specialist at MPS. "More importantly, it recognizes and rewards deserving students who have grown so much both personally and in their school work. We are truly thankful for the support provided by Briggs & Stratton over the years."
