Since its inception in 2015, the Character Council of Edmond has sought high school seniors who exemplify good character in their daily lives. The application process includes a 400-450 word essay based on a character trait they demonstrate, as well as, a letter of recommendation that will attest to their character. In 2015, we awarded our first scholarship to Patricia Salas from Santa Fe High School. In 2016, we were able to fund three scholarships. Kathryn Puckett from Memorial, Hannah Berndt from North, and Kennedy Allbee from Santa Fe were awarded a $1000 scholarship each. Last year, we awarded three $1000 scholarships. The recipients included Kylie May from Memorial, Alison Duke from North, and Cassidy Towe from Santa Fe. This year we added three more Edmond seniors to our scholarship winners' list. They are Kelsey DePrang from Memorial, Brandon Duong from Santa Fe, and William Hentges from North High School. Congratulations to all these outstanding students.

We will post the 2019 Senior Scholarship application in the fall.
