The Sandbox Foundation congratulates all its Scholarship recipients for 2021. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, most school districts cancelled public Honors night presentations for their seniors. Advisors of the foundation make every effort to present annual grants to recipients in person. The only district to permit in-person Scholarship presentations was L’anse Creuse North, where Rock delivered the Barbara Faye Scholarship to Avery Brown.
The Sandbox Scholarship recipients for 2021 are:
Inspiration Scholarship: Audrey Walker, Armada HS. Audrey plans on studying Biology (Veterinarian) at Kalamazoo College
Barbara Faye Scholarship: Ava Johnston, Romeo HS. Ava plans on studying Nursing at Michigan State
Barbara Faye Scholarship: Avery Brown, L’anse Creuse North. Avery plans on studying Nursing at Macomb and Oakland Colleges
Wayne Scholarship: Gabby Cardamone, Romeo HS. Gabby is headed to Michigan to become a Physician
Wayne Scholarship: Joseph Greenlee, Romeo HS. Joseph plans to study law at Michigan State
Continuing Scholarship: Brooke Bennett, Romeo HS. Brooke continues here studies at Hope College medical school
In addition, a Kuchenmeister Family Scholarship was awarded to Filip Cvetkovski of Romeo HS. Filip will be studying Computer Science at Oakland University.
The recipients have all been notified directly by the foundation or through their school’s counseling office. We congratulate all this year’s Scholarship recipients and look forward to meeting them in person, perhaps at a foundation fundraiser later this year.
The Sandbox Foundation does not publicly disclose grant amounts, but prides itself on making a measurable difference to each recipient and the school districts it supports.
