~$700,000 In Scholarships And Awards Announced Monday For The CHS Class of 2006
Previous Coverage:
I'm invoking my "all or none rule" today and won't list any names and awards as I don't have time to type in all of those I managed to get in my notes. I still have work to do to prepare for graduation tomorrow. Based on my camera results from Baccalaueate Sunday and the assembly today, I suspect I will only get usable photos of graduates getting their diplomas for about half the students as they cross the stage. It will likely take me a day or two to make my final updates to all of the individual senior pages. If you get a good photo and I don't add one to their page I will accept photos for a few days after graduation. I will then shift back to working on photos and CDs requested in the past few weeks. -- Ted 1:45 Monday 5/15/2006
Awards ranging from $50 cash to full-ride scholarships were announced today for the 2006 CHS seniors. Some students had better results than others for the payoff of years of academic and sporting efforts plus months of filling out local applications and college financial aid forms. The announced total so far this year was $700,000. That total seems to rise each year, but so does the cost of a college education.
An email received Monday afternoon (after the awards assembly):

I was notified by Dr. Shelly Butler-Allen from Cherokee Nation that Rebyl Richardson is one of four recipients of the Cherokee Nation Education Corporation Scholarship. She will receive $1000.00 per semester. Shelly said it was a rigorous review of the 10 semi-finalist nominations for the scholarship over the past few weeks. She said the applications were outstanding and all candidate qualifications reflected a high degree of academic preparation and service to their community. She said it made her proud to see our JOM students academically, socially and mentally prepared to meet the challenges of a new passage in their lives. Shelly said it was difficult to select the final four (4) scholarship recipients.
