“When we read these essays from our young people, I am deeply moved by their life experiences, lessons learned, and depth of their characters. We have some great young men and women in our community. In her essay, Kathryn showed how she models her mom’s example of service and kindness to others,” said Barb Sanders, widow of Dr. J. Scott Sanders.
To be considered for the scholarship, applicants must write about how character has been important in achieving their accomplishments to date, how it will be a key cornerstone of their future and how they recognize character in others.
