Thank you to all of the 150+ students who submitted outstanding scholarship essays and videos this year. Our team received 98 Twitter videos, 160 tweets, and 39 re-tweets.
Every student shared a unique story, and it was a pleasure for our team to read each submission.
Many students advised their younger selves to be true to who they are no matter what others thought, to always maintain relationships with family and friends, and to strive to work hard in school.
After much deliberation, we are excited to announce that the winner of this year’s CSC scholarship is Keyonna Hicks.
Congratulations Keyonna! Below is Keyonna's video submission:
