Christa Ann Bupp has been accepted at Youngstown State University. She plans to pursue a degree in Music Education. In her scholarship essay, Christa shares “One of the things I am most thankful for is how much the administration and school district support and encourage the music and arts programs.”

Carly Danielson has been accepted at Pennsylvania State University. Her interests include medical sciences, the specialty areas of dermatology and dentistry, and meteorology. Carly came to Shenango in fourth grade, and she writes “Shenango’s teachers and other staff members are extremely friendly and supportive. I feel this support makes a huge impact on the students and their success.”

Logan Lutton has a passion for journalism and plans to concentrate her interest in photojournalism. She will attend Kent State University this fall. Logan reflected on her growth at Shenango from her early elementary years through her graduation this spring, “I would not have been able to arrive where I stand today without the backbone Shenango has provided for me.”

Shelby McCart shares her career goal of becoming a Physician’s Assistant. To that end, she has chosen to attend Robert Morris University. One lifelong lesson Shelby shares in her scholarship application is, “I was always taught that ‘failure’ meant there was room to grow.” In her chosen profession, Shelby wants to help others.

Hunter Miller, the Valedictorian of the Class of 2015, has chosen Pennsylvania State University to study Chemical Engineering. Hunter understands the delicate nature of balancing both athletics and academics. He praises Shenango for helping him learn “lessons of hard work, dedication, and teamwork” both on the field or court and in the classroom.

 

SCEF is a non-profit organization whose mission is to advance educational opportunities for students of Shenango Area School District. Congratulations to all the scholarship recipients, and best of luck to all graduating students.
