Student Council Alumni Scholarship
The Student Council Scholarship is open to any senior graduating from GHS or EVHS that attended JoAnn Ford Elementary School. * Applicants must demonstrate leadership qualities and a dedication to community service. In addition, applicants must submit letters of recommendation, awards and honors received, extra-curricular and work history, and transcripts to the JoAnn Ford Student Council.
Applications are reviewed by current Student Council Officers. In addition, parent volunteers, school administration, Student Council sponsors, and the entire Student Council body may evaluate the applications. The members of the panel that review the application vary from year-to-year to avoid any conflicts of interest.
Each year the current Student Council raises funds for the scholarship through various activities, such as, the Naked Turkey Contest.
The amount awarded to the recipients varies depending on the success of the various fundraisers. In the past one $1000 and two $500 scholarships were awarded. Funds go directly to the college/university of the recipients. Recipients are presented with a certificate by the Student Council President and Vice-President at a ceremony in May.
*Applicants need to attend JoAnn Ford Elementary for at least one year during their kindergarten through 5th grade academic years.
***Students interested in applying for the Scholarship can pick up materials at their high school in the scholarship office.
