College Connectors Announces Focus on the Future Scholarship Winners – May 2020
In honor of our 20th anniversary, College Connectors launched the “Focus On The Future” scholarship program for college-bound high school students. Eligible students demonstrated their candidacy by writing short reflection pieces and a letter to their future self, showing originality, critical thinking and character. A panel of College Connectors consultants reviewed student applications and selected semi-finalists for interviews. The winners were chosen based on their leadership, character, and engagement. Eight students from four states were declared winners.
“It’s something we’ve been planning to do to celebrate our anniversary and to give back,” said Jenny Buyens, co-owner. “We were so happy with the quality of the applications, and it was really hard to choose the winners,” offered Kate Malczewski, co-owner.
Winners were notified by College Connectors regional consultants and will receive awards that will be applied to the college of their choice.
