Remedios Montalbo, A. Michael Young, and the Ann Arbor Symphony (A2SO) have announced the formation of two new scholarships designed for a graduating senior at Pinckney Community High School and at Ypsilanti Community High to attend a college, university or technical school in a general field of study. These are in addition to scholarships that began in 2017 for a Pinckney and Ypsilanti High School graduating senior in a music- or arts-related field. Each of the one-year, $2,500 scholarships is based on the Youngs’ deep pride in their community, their respect for education and volunteerism, and their belief in the potential that is part of every youngster. Prior academic performance, citizenship, extracurricular activities, and recommendations from non-faculty individuals as well as the motivation, character, ability, and potential of the applicants will be considered.
Counselors at each school will help direct graduating seniors to apply for the scholarship.
