2018 Colonel Charles E. Young Memorial Scholarship Winners

Colonel Charles Young Scholarship

Congratulations to the 2018 High School and Continuing Education level scholarship awardees! Out of over 100 applications below is a listing of the 2018 scholarship recipients. The scholarships are awarded based on GPA, Extra Curricular Activities and a graded essay assignment. This year’s essay topic was about the hard fought battles that African Americans and Woman had to go thru to earn the right to vote via the 15th and 20th Amendments respectively. Statistical both of these groups saw a decline in participation during 2016 presidential election. Applicants had to write an 800 to 1200 word essay in response to two questions:

1. Offer some historical accounts on the struggle for African Americans and Woman to earn the right to vote.

2. Identify what they saw as the primary causes for the 2016 presidential election participation drop by both groups plus they had to provide recommendations to help prevent future voter participation decline.
