THE DEFINITION OF BROCK STRONG!
We love scholarship season!! Each year since we started the foundation we have awarded high school scholarships to area seniors. In order to be considered, students must meet the following criteria: a minimum of a 3.5 grade point average, submit three letters of recommendation (one from a school administrator, one from a teacher, and one personal), and write a 500 word essay essay on what it means to them to be BrockStrong. Every year we receive so many awesome applications. And just like every year, we wish we could give scholarships to every applicant. The finalists, chosen by board members, are then interviewed, and this year we did our interviews via Zoom.
We are very proud to recognize this year’s winners of the $1,111.11 BrockStrong Foundation Scholarships:
Brandon Powers from Pickerington Central High School. Allena Klamorick, Avery Nack, Blaine Riley, Maddie Kelley, Holly Counts, Brooklyn Best, Sam Peters and Olivia Dearth-all from Canal Winchester High School.
A special thank you to the family of Deb Saulnier that had memorial donations given to the Brockstrong Foundation. Allie Saulnier, Deb’s daughter, sat in on our scholarship panel this year and chose the recipient she wanted to receive the donations made in Deb’s honor. That recipient was Brooklyn Best.
Thank you to David Gorman for donating the banners and to the American Red Cross for contributing to our scholarship fund for the blood collected at our blood drives! To our winners: You are the definition of Brock Strong, and we cannot wait to see the good things you do for this world!
