“We are thrilled to be able to provide financial assistance for post-secondary education by recognizing a student that exemplifies the importance of good character in their daily life,” said Greg Duke, President of the Prattville-Autauga Character Coalition. “Many scholarships reward academic performance or athletic achievement, but few are truly based on the importance of good character. And, we know good character creates a firm foundation for true success.”
This year, the Character Coalition is thrilled to be presenting two Excellence in Character Scholarship Awards, one $3,500 scholarship will be awarded to a graduating senior attending high school in Autauga County or the City of Prattville and a second scholarship will be awarded to an individual who graduated in Autauga County or the City of Prattville and is currently enrolled or plans to enroll in post-secondary education.
Applicants are required to complete an application and to provide three letters of recommendation. Applications must be received by February 28, 2020 and will be reviewed by the Prattville-Autauga Character Coalition Scholarship Committee. The top applicants will be invited to participate in an interview process to be held during the week of March 30- April 3, 2020.
“Because of the amazing support and engagement of our citizens and community leaders in Autauga County and Prattville, we are thrilled to be able to present two scholarships this year to deserving students. We are thankful for their continued support, this scholarship opportunity would not be possible without their support,” said Nagea Littleton, Past-President of the Prattville-Autauga Character Coalition. “We know that character sets the course of direction for our lives, so what better way to help ensure a person of good character achieves their dreams.”
