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. In 2018 three more Edmond seniors were added to our scholarship winners' list. They are Kelsey DePrang from Memorial, Brandon Duong from Santa Fe, and William Hentges from North High School.
Our 2019 scholarship recipients were recently announced at our April Board meeting. $1000.00 Scholarships were presented to Caroline Best (North), Casey Minnick (Memorial), and Aja Montgomery (Santa Fe). Congratulations to all these outstanding students.
