To be eligible for the Donna Easter Student Ethics Awards, applicants must: be graduating from high school in any of the 19 counties we serve; plan on attending any two or four-year college, technical college or university beginning in the upcoming fall; and be in good academic standing and show proof of community service and leadership while in high school. Scholarship recipients will be announced in mid-May. These scholarships can be used for room, board, books, tuition and fees.
In addition to completing the application, applicants must also submit a transcript, a high school resume (demonstrating leadership abilities, community service and academic achievements), and a 500-word essay describing how you handled an ethical dilemma you faced. The scholarships are named in honor of our colleague and friend. The scholarship exemplify many of the traits that Donna exhibited throughout her life and we are grateful to the Easter family for allowing us to honor Donna’s memory.
