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

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.”
