Health Partners Foundation gave four students college scholarships and honored 100 students for perfect attendance during its “Be There!” perfect attendance and Make Dreams Reality scholarship luncheon.
The perfect attendance and scholarship programs recognize students for their exemplary achievements, while aiming to teach them the importance of education. During the ceremony, FBI Community Outreach Specialist Natosha Warner further praised the students’ accomplishments and encouraged them to pursue their dreams.
High-school seniors Taushi Burrell of Chester HS, Octavias Barnes of Murrell Dobbins Career & Technical Education HS, Colin J. Platt of Norristown Area HS and Zoralis Ortiz of Aspira Olney Charter HS each received multi-year scholarships that provide $2,000 for their first year.
The scholarships increase each year the students maintains at least a 3.0 average. Since its inception, the program has awarded nearly $200,000 in scholarships.
“Even after almost 15 years, it is still a pleasure to help students realize their dreams of going to college. It is also gratifying to see students get motivated about their education and dedicate themselves to regularly attending school,” said Claudia Tucker Keto, executive director of Health Partners Foundation.
