The Knightly News podcast is pleased to release episode #48, featuring Central Penn College Education Foundation Director of Development Sandy Box and Student Activities Director Adrienne Thoman.
Also featured on the podcast are Knightly News President Brian Christiana and Knightly News Vice President Ian Kemmerer.
Box focuses her discussions on the deadline of the Education Foundation Essay Contest. Twice a year, students can submit an essay about a specific subject in order to apply for scholarship monies from donors to the foundation. Box plans on awarding up to $100,000 in scholarships to our students this term.
The subject of the essay that students will write about is as follows, “Describe areas in your life where you demonstrated leadership and overcame obstacles either through your school, social, or family life.”
In addition, Box discusses tips for success on the essay and important areas to focus on when writing.
Students have until Friday, Feb. 2 at 11:59 p.m. to complete and submit the essay in order to be considered. The application can be found at http://foundation.centralpenn.edu/.
