Short Biographies of the Scholarship Winners

Dayton Early College Academy College Counselor Courtney Henderson wrote, “When I think of a way to summarize Stephanie Johnson in one word, “driven” captures her best. When she strives for something, she attains it. In addition to completing over 100 hours of community service and participating in multiple job shadows and internships, Ms. Johnson has been able to maintain more than a 3.0 grade point average—all while working at a part-time job. Stephanie is self-disciplined, hard-working and persistent. She is well-liked by her peers, and often offers others help and assistance when they are in need. In an effort to continue to help others, she plans on preparing a college education and career in the field of physical therapy.”
