This scholarship is for high school seniors who attend Western High School and live in Bay County, Michigan. To qualify for this scholarship, applicants must have a 2.5 GPA and plan to enroll as full- or part-time students in a post-secondary institution. Scholarships will be awarded based on leadership skills and involvement in school-related and community activities. In addition to the application, applicants must attach answers the following questions: 1. What life and career goals are you planning on pursuing? Discuss why you have chosen these goals and what influences have affected your decisions. 2. You have often heard of people “making a difference.” How have you attempted to “make a difference” and how do you plan on “making a difference” in the future? 3. Without naming the teacher, think of an educator you have come in contact with over the past 13 years who has had a great impact on your life. Discuss the qualities of this teacher who has made such a significant impact on you, and what lessons you have learned from him/her that will guide your own life. 4. Noting that this is a leadership scholarship, why should this scholarship committee award you this honor? Please be sure to include what kind of leader you are, knowing that there are many different successful leadership styles.
