Four college-bound Northumberland High School seniors received college scholarships from the Northumberland Association for Progressive Stewardship (NAPS) during the Senior Recognition presentation ceremony at the school auditorium in Claraville, VA, Wednesday, May 18, 2022. Scholarships of $1,500 each were awarded to Thomas Neale, Hallie Shackleford, Channing Reynolds and Jessica Lee.
The scholarships were presented by Mike Ahart, NAPS president, and Martha Tallent, chair of the NAPS Scholarship Committee. Ahart praised the students for their achievement and thanked the students for their contributions to the community. In addition to awarding scholarships, NAPS encourages students to volunteer for its creek, roadway and shoreline cleanups. NAPS also sponsors STEM, nature and environmental stewardship projects, events and programs in coordination with the schools.
The NAPS Scholarship Committee considered financial need, academic accomplishments, community focus, clarity of vision, probability of success, and alignment with NAPS’ environmental sustainability values, according to Tallent.
