We started out just recognizing Academic Achievement;  In 2013 we began to also acknowledge community service and leadership, and reward sheer determination (manifesting the promise). Why?   Because all of these qualities are important to having a thriving community. Sure, not every one has what it takes to be at the top of the class.  Our response is “be the best you can absolutely be, push through, be determined and doors will open for you.   Additionally, we understand that a community that cares and shares grows.  The sentiment, “It takes a village” has never been more true.  Each of us have a responsibility to help others.   These behaviors are essential to the community in which we live and  recognized in our scholarship recipients.
