Hi everyone! This is Josh, the Straight “A” intern for Spring/Summer 2016! If you haven’t already, you should visit the Meet the Interns page to learn a little bit more about me and the rest of the interns at the Anthony Muñoz Foundation! To provide you with some background knowledge, our Straight “A” Scholarship aims to recognize students in our Impact Area who embody the six “A’s,” which are: pursuing Academic excellence, Athletic achievement, an Active role in the community while possessing a strong Ambition, a winning Attitude, and the ability to overcome Adversity! The only requirements for this scholarship are that the nominee must have a minimum 3.0 GPA, must reside in our Impact Area, and to receive scholarship money they must be a high school senior.
With a little less than a month to go until the deadline to turn in Straight “A” Nominations (February 26th), we have had applications rolling in from all over our Impact Area! As of today, we have received 81 nominations, which is an increase from last year! I am amazed at how so many schools have been represented from all over our Impact Area, with dozens of schools sending in nominations for their deserving students!
I am looking forward to carrying this momentum forward as the deadline fast approaches! By the end of next month, I am hoping to have our highest nomination pool yet in the history of our Straight “A” Scholarship! Be sure to check back in for more updates!
