Character Scholarship Awarded at Santa Fe High School

Santa Fe High School Senior Patricia Salas was presented a $1,000 scholarship certificate, on behalf of the Character Council of Edmond in partnership with the Kiwanis Club of Edmond, during the May 15th Santa Fe Senior Awards Ceremony.

Salas was honored by Character Council President Jim Hulsey and Vice President Diane Krakowski for demonstrating the character trait of determination; purposing to accomplish right goals at the right time, regardless of the opposition. In her application, Ms.Salas wrote, "I believe in the power of self-motivation and its affect on one's life. Although not perfect, I am proud of myself. My accomplishments are the product of a great character: determination."

Patricia Salas has the distinction of being the first student to receive this inaugural Senior Scholarship. Future plans are to make the scholarship application available to seniors from all the Edmond high schools. Toward that goal, the Character Council of Edmond gladly accepts tax-exempt donations to fund the senior scholarships. Please send your contributions to: Character Council of Edmond, P.O. Box 392, Edmond, OK 73083-0392.
