Brewer Foundation Awards Scholarships to 9 Boone Students

Nine students from Boone County schools received a scholarship from Boone County Commissioner Jesse Brewer's foundation.

The Brewer Foundation for Civic Engagement awarded $250 scholarships to each student.

The students demonstrated an interest in or participation in civic engagement activities, the foundation said in a news release.

The following students were awarded scholarships:

  • Yazan Orabi, Boone County High School

  • Kayla Adams, Boone County High School

  • Amanda Martin, Connor High School

  • Corey Scott, Connor High School

  • Bridgette Day, Randall K. Cooper High School

  • Carter McIntire, Larry A. Ryle High School

  • Drew Janzen, Larry A. Ryle High School

  • Frannie Hicks, Walton-Verona High School

  • Emma Ridener, Walton-Verona High School

To be considered for the scholarships, students must submit a resume that summarizes their academic achievements, extra-curricular involvement, and participation in community programs and charities. In addition, students must submit essays detailing what civic involvement means to them.

“These students have demonstrated a commitment to community service and civic engagement in our community,” Brewer said. “Based on this commitment and the thoughts they expressed in their essays, I wouldn’t be surprised to see several of these young men and women serving in community leadership positions in the very near future.”
