Four Gil Morrison Memorial Scholarships were presented during the virtual Sandwich High School Senior Awards Night on May 13.
Ava Knepper, Seth Weeks, Paige Sartori and Rex Avery were the recipients of the third annual scholarship. Applications were anonymously reviewed by a committee of seven educators who ranked each applicant based on GPA and financial need, as well as involvement in school and community activities.
Gil Morrison, whom the scholarship honors, was in education for 34 years at Sandwich schools and served as the DeKalb County Regional Superintendent. He coached sports, speech team and directed plays, as well as taught language arts, social studies, and the Challenge Program in District 430.
The committee looks forward to awarding this annual scholarship in the coming years.
