Edmond Character Council announced the 2022 Edmond High School scholarship winners Campbell Christensen, Jaclyn Fan, and Kayla Nguyen who were honored for their exemplary character at a reception following the Character Council’s April board meeting. Character Council members are excited to present this year’s worthy seniors with a $1500 scholarship each.
The selection committee, comprised of eight volunteers, was impressed by all the applications submitted this year. What really stood out was how each senior overcame the adverse effects of the pandemic during their high school years. Their resilience made a positive difference in their personal lives, their schools, and their community. With all the negative news that surrounds us, we should focus on the kindness and compassion that surrounds us, too.
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 an essay based on a character trait they demonstrate and a letter of recommendation that will attest to their character. We awarded our first scholarship to Patricia Salas from Santa Fe High School. Since then, we have awarded the following $1000.00 Scholarships:
Starting in 2021, the Character Council was able to fund scholarships for $1500 thanks to the generosity of others.
