Six Highland County seniors — Leah Bauer, Baylee Carey, Allison Davis, Joseph Gall, Paige Howland and Paige Teeters — have been named as recipients of the 2020 Cassner Scholarships.
The Cassner Foundation Scholarship was established by Mr. and Mrs. Alvin B. Cassner. At least six $3,500 scholarships are awarded annually to Highland County high school seniors. Scholarships are renewable for a four-year period upon evidence that a 2.0 grade point average is maintained.
Scholarships are awarded on the basis of academic achievement, personal qualifications and stated goals and objectives.
The final applicants are interviewed by a three-person screening committee before the committee awards the scholarships.
Students can receive information about the scholarship from their school counselor.
