This spring, one graduate of Farmington High School will receive a $1,500 scholarship from the Shelter Insurance Foundation. The award will be sponsored and partially funded by local Shelter Agent, Mike Jones.
The recipient of the $1,500 award will be chose by a committee of local high school officials and community leaders. The committee will consider each applicant’s scholastic achievements, educational goals, citizenship, moral character, and participation and leadership in school and community activities. The scholarship will be given without regard to race, disability, religion, national origin or gender of the applicants. The name of the scholarship winner will be announced at the close of the school year.
The scholarship may be applied toward tuition, fees, room and board for any course of study beginning the fall after the recipient’s high school graduation and leading to an academic degree at any accredited college or university. Payment will be made directly to the school the winner selects.
Applications and additional information about the Shelter Foundation Scholarship will be available in early March and should be completed and retuned to the school official serving on the selection committee by March 31. For more information, interested seniors should contact their high school counselor or principal or Mike Jones, the Shelter Insurance Agent.
