SEF helps to establish Jeneva Rose scholarship
Jim Rose statement on the Jeneva Rose Scholarship….
As you all know Jeneva was a dedicated high school counselor who liked nothing more than giving a little bit of extra encouragement to a student who really needed it. This evening, with the help of the Sherwood Education Foundation, we created the Jeneva Rose Memorial Scholarship fund. This will create an annual scholarship available to a Sherwood High School senior who is nominated by a teacher.
The recipient will be a student who has struggled or overcome some barrier(s) to improve academically and successfully graduate from high school. The intent is also that this award be given to a student who may not otherwise receive a scholarship – giving them an additional incentive to pursue their post-secondary interests and training.
Each year one $1,000 scholarship will be available. This scholarship can be used for tuition, room and board, or books at a college or trade school.
I know Jeneva had a lasting impact on students over her 15 years at SHS and hopefully this scholarship will allow her to have an impact for many years to come.
