Congratulations, Class of 2015!
The Barberton Community Foundation’s (BCF) high school scholarship program was implemented in 1997 to assist Barberton High School graduates reach their educational goals. As one of the Foundation’s signature community investments, the program recognizes students’ academic achievement and helps propel promising students into the pursuit of higher education.
On Monday evening, the BCF and its fund holders awarded many students with scholarships at the Academic Recognition Scholarship Program that took place at Barberton High School. The current program awards over $100,000 annually to each graduating class. This program includes awards for Summa Cum Laude, Magna Cum Laude and Cum Laude along with special recognition awards for excellence in character and talent. Implemented in 2014, renewable scholarships are awarded to students not designated cum laude but those that received a 21 or higher on their ACT. This year, 13 of these students were recognized. Additionally, five students were selected to receive a ‘First Generation’ Scholarship – awarded to students who are the first in their families to receive a Bachelor’s degree.
