The Wakefield High School Education Foundation is pleased to announce the 2015 winners of scholarships at Wakefield. This year we are awarding twenty-four scholarships totaling $177,000. That brings the total scholarships granted over the history of the Foundation to 345. As of this cycle, we have given $1,845,699 in scholarships and teacher grants. I find that amazing.
This year the ninety-two applications were reviewed by John Clisham, Paul Ferguson ’83, Huda Ibrahim ’09, Malake Jabbara ’08, Doris Jackson, Ralph Johnson, Jim Jones ’86, David Mitchell ’65, Lyda Mitchell ’94, Millie Mohler Lawson ‘63, Kelly Thompson ’72, Don Tomb, Susan Saulmon Trice ’63, Micah Stein-Verbit ’95, Bill Vogleson ’66 and Catherine Wilson ‘63.
Congratulations to the following Scholarship winners!
$10,000 scholarships were granted to the following students who will be attending four-year schools:
ALEISHA MARIE BYNUM
PATRICK THOMAS GIRARD
$4,000 scholarships were granted to the following students who will be attending NOVA:
JOSE ENRIQUE ORIHUELA SANTOS
BRENDA L SALVADOR
GABRIELA REBECA ZELAYA-BENITEZ
A $4,000 Scholarship was also given to SHARMILA PANDIYARAJU, class of 2011, who was a NOVA Scholar in the past and is moving on to a four-year school.
In addition, KYE FARROW met all the criteria and was selected to be a Wakefield Scholar. But, because he has been awarded significant funding from other sources, he has been honored and recognized with a one-time grant of $1,000.
If anyone at school has any questions about the scholarship program, they are always welcome to call me at 703-892-4780. Please feel free to forward this email to anyone who might be interested. – Conchita
