HARRISBURG – State Rep. Mark Rozzi, D-Berks, congratulated Antietam Middle Senior High School senior Kelly Weikel today for winning one of two recently awarded 2017-18 Pennsylvania House of Representative Scholarships.
Winners of the scholarship receive a four-year scholarship at the tuition level equivalent of one semester at a State System of Higher Education School.
“Congratulations to Kelly for earning this scholarship for her academic performance, commitment to her community and demonstration of leadership,” Rozzi said. “I hope this scholarship provides much needed assistance as she continues her education, because no Pennsylvanian should have to take on unreasonable amounts of debt in order to better themselves.”
To be eligible, a student must be a graduating senior living in Pennsylvania with a minimum 3.0 cumulative grade-point average, participate in extracurricular activities, have community and leadership skills and demonstrate financial need.
The scholarship program, which is privately funded by individual and corporate donations, is administered through the Foundation for Enhancing Communities.
