The Paint Branch High School Educational Foundation awarded five $500.00 scholarships to Paint Branch Seniors this spring to be applied to the college of their choice. The students who won the scholarships are:
- Caroline Davis – University of Maryland, Baltimore County
- Robert DelSole – Bellarmine University
- Rachel Morgan – Towson University
- Bummah Ndeh – Morehouse College
- Lola Soniregun – The Pennsylvania State University
Students were asked to write an essay around the theme of “Two of the most innovative people in our history said the following: “If we did the things we are capable of, we would astound ourselves [Thomas Edison]” and “I want to put a ding in the universe [Steve Jobs].”” Student responses were to interpret and relate the quote to their educational future and adult life.
From the initial group of essays, the Board of Directors selected the top eight. Interviews were then held with the top candidates and five students were selected. The scholarships were presented to the students at the Academic Awards night held at Paint Branch High School.
