Colonel Charles Young Scholarship 2017
Congratulations to the 2017 High School and Continuing Education level scholarship awardees! Out of nearly 100 applications click here for our 2017 scholarship recipients. The scholarships are awarded based on GPA, Extracurricular Activities and a graded essay assignment. This year’s essay topic was on the Affordable Care Act one of President Obama’s major legislative accomplishments aimed at making healthcare more affordable for all Americans. Applicants had to write a 1000 to 1200 word essay describing their knowledge of ACA and how it impacted access to healthcare. They were also asked to comment on whether or not going forward the ACA should be: 1.) improved and amended, or 2) repealed and replaced. Not a single student recommended repeal and replace. They offered some very strong recommendations for improving the legislation. Again congratulations to the 2017 awardees.
