LARGO – The Pinellas Education Foundation honored the 235 seniors who will be graduating this year with a Take Stock in Children Scholarship in a celebration event on May 15 at Pinellas Park High School.

These seniors represent $3.05 million in scholarship awards. In addition, 60 Take Stock in Children seniors are being awarded Florida Prepaid dormitory scholarships through the Take Stock in Children state office. Each dormitory scholarship is worth $11,745 for a total value of $704,700.

The event included a presentation of scholarships and medallions and encouragement from Pinellas County Superintendent Dr. Michael Grego and Pinellas Education Foundation Take Stock in Children Committee Co-Chair John Dosher. In addition, students were given letters of congratulations from Take Stock in Children President and CEO Madeline Pumariego and State Representative Kathleen Peters.

These seniors will be heading to colleges and technical schools including Florida State, University of Florida, St. Petersburg College, University of South Florida, pTEC, Duke University, Bethune-Cookman University, Stetson University, Northwestern University, Brown University and University of Central Florida in addition to many more.

“It’s an honor to recognize what these students have accomplished,” Dosher said in a press release. “They’ve laid the foundation on which to build a successful career and life, and we expect to see great things from these graduates in the future.”

The Pinellas Take Stock in Children Scholarship Program is managed through the Pinellas Education Foundation, and made possible through the generous donations and support of corporate partners, individuals and alumni who invest in the scholarship program. The Pinellas Education Foundation matches donor commitments with Florida Prepaid College Foundation funds.
