Two Cherokee County School District Class of 2023 graduating seniors have earned National Merit Special Scholarships sponsored by corporations!
They are among the 800 distinguished high school seniors nationwide to win special scholarship awards financed by corporations, company foundations and other business organizations.
Selection is made based on review of academic records and college-entrance exam scores; leadership and service in their school and community; and personal essays and letters of recommendation. Others factors also may apply such as a winner’s parent being employed with the corporation, living in the corporation’s service area or planned pursuit of a specific career or college major.
Nandita Bipin of River Ridge High School has been selected as a winner of the Truist Scholarship sponsored by Truist Financial Corporation. Rhiannon Crisante of Cherokee High School has been selected as a winner of the ADP Henry Taub Memorial Scholarship sponsored by ADP Foundation.
“Congratulations to Nandita and Rhiannon on earning these competitive scholarships,” Superintendent of Schools Dr. Brian V. Hightower said. “We’re proud of your successes and wish you the best as you head off to college. We can’t wait to see all that you will accomplish!”
