Yesterday American School held its 78th annual Scholarship Committee Meeting. Permanent committee members and American School trustees Dr. John Kemp and Cher Tufly were joined by this year's guest committee member, David Smith, a former public school superintendent, to select this year's winners. Eighteen American School graduates will receive a total of $21,000 in scholarships, and we'll profile them in the July-August All American newsletter. These individuals wanted to earn a high school diploma at home and did just that by using our college preparatory program or general high school diploma program. Special thanks to our school counselor Amanda Giordano for coordinating this year's scholarship process. Applications for our 2017 scholarships will be sent to eligible graduates early next year.
