It’s hard to believe that this year’s Straight “A” Luncheon is a little over a month away! With that being said, our committee has selected nine male and nine female finalists for this year’s Straight “A” Scholarship. These outstanding individuals demonstrate what it means to redefine the meaning of being a Straight “A” student. Each of our finalists have demonstrated Academic and Athletic excellence, a strong Ambition, played an Active role in the community, as well as a maintained a positive Attitude and showed the ability to overcome Adversity. Congratulations to our finalists!
With over 300 high school students being nominated from 125 schools, this year’s nomination pool consisted of the highest number of nominees in the history of the Anthony Muñoz Foundation’s Straight “A” Scholarship. Each of the finalists above will receive $2,000 in scholarship money that will be used to continue their academic career. All eighteen finalists will be recognized and honored at the Straight “A” Luncheon on April 26th hosted by Jeff Ruby’s Steakhouse. At this lunch, one male and one female finalists will be announced as the Overall Straight “A” Student and receive an additional $3,000.
In the weeks leading up to the Straight “A” Luncheon, we will be sharing a brief profile of each finalist as well as catch up with some past Straight “A” Scholarship winners. Stay up to date and follow us on Facebook and Twitter (#SALuncheon) as we share some amazing stories about our finalists!
