Each year there are two waves of applications and awards. First are the scholarships available to graduating seniors from all of our Carroll County high schools. A few of these are awarded during the year at the Career and Technology Center — nursing and diesel mechanics, for example — but most are awarded in June at the various award ceremonies. When a family member can’t make the presentation, someone from my office, myself, staff or board member, attends every one of the award ceremonies. We are honored to do it. We have tried to make it convenient for applicants by listing the scholarships by school so people don’t have to slog through all of them. That only works for some, as quite a few of our scholarships are offered to more than one school.
