In 2003, the Straight ‘A’ Scholarship was created in order to recognize students who demonstrated academic excellence, athletic achievement, and all-around character. We’ve further defined these “all-around” characteristics by creating the Six ‘A’s of the Straight ‘A’ Scholarship:
- Pursuing Academic excellence as well as Athletic achievement
- Actively serving the community
- Possessing a strong Ambition
- Maintaining a winning Attitude
- Having the ability to overcome Adversity
Throughout the years, the Straight ‘A’ Scholarship has grown thanks to the support of our Tri-State communities. With nominations from teachers, parents, coaches, and even classmates, we are constantly reminded about the large number of deserving students. It’s exciting to see nominators encouraging students to dream big and pursue higher education.
The Straight ‘A’ Scholarship has grown from receiving a total number of 61 nominations in 2003 to receiving more than 140 nominations in 2017, with ONE WEEK left to nominate! We currently have more than 60 different high-schools who have nominated deserving students. We would not be able to recognize students’ all-around achievements without your nominations.
Have you nominated yet? Help us recognize students you know that resemble the Six ‘A’s of Straight ‘A’ Scholarship by nominating before the deadline – Friday, February 24.
