Archbold Auxiliary Awards Scholarships
The Archbold Auxiliary recently awarded $40,000 in academic scholarships to area students who have aspirations of a career in healthcare. The scholarships are made possible each year by fundraising efforts through Auxiliary Gift Shop sales and memorial donations.
The Auxiliary Scholarship Committee reviewed over 50 new applications, from which 22 new scholarship recipients were selected, along with 18 returning recipients. Recipients are required to be residents of Brooks, Grady, Mitchell and Thomas Counties. Selection is based on academic performance (applicants must have a minimum grade point average of 3.0), recommendation letters from community members and a personal essay. Select applicants are interviewed by the scholarship committee.
Scholarship committee members include Emma Chatmon, Susan Herin, Alice Pugh, Nelda Rome, Janet Schmidt, and Imogene Conyers, who also serves as the committee’s Chairman.
High school seniors, as well as current college students, are eligible to apply for the Archbold Auxiliary scholarship.
