Six Highland County high school seniors — Ashley Ernst, Alex Greene, Brianna Jones, Kerigan Pollard, Morgan Sheridan and Emma Stegbauer — have been selected to receive 2021 Cassner Foundation Scholarships.
The scholarships were established by Mr. and Mrs. Alvin B. Cassner. Six $3,500 a year 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 scholarships from their school counselor.
