CG, Springfield students awarded scholarships

Faryn Dahlen and Jackson Perkins, from Cottage Grove High School, and Alessandra Weiss, from the Academy of Arts and Academics in Springfield, were recently awarded $1,500 scholarships from SELCO Community Credit Union.
Winners were selected based on criteria that include both academic performance and community involvement. Applicants were asked to submit letters of recommendation as well as a personal essay on what their personal Wikipedia entry will say in the year 2050.
”As is the case every year, we were once again heartened to review the accomplishments of such an impressive group of young Oregon students,” said Laura Illig, SELCO’s Vice President of Marketing. ”These scholarships are a step in helping these deserving students reach their dreams.”
To qualify, recipients must be graduating from a four-year accredited high school in Oregon, have a cumulative GPA of at least 3.5, and plan to attend a two- or four-year college or university.
