Communities in Schools taking scholarship applications

Communities in Schools of Rowan County will accept scholarship applications through April 16.

The scholarship will be awarded to a student graduating from a Rowan-Salisbury Schools high school who is or has been enrolled in a CIS Rowan school site for at least one school year during their school career.

The recipient will be asked to demonstrate how the mission of Communities in Schools — “to surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life” — helped them to reach graduation day.

The scholarship is awarded to honor former CIS Executive Director Vicky Slusser for her many years of service.

At least one scholarship of $500 will be awarded to a 2018 graduate.

Applications and details are at www.cisrowan.org or available in guidance offices at all Rowan-Salisbury high schools.
