The Carbon High School senior class of 2019 gathered together in the school’s auditorium on Wednesday afternoon for a special senior scholarship and award assembly.
During this assembly, many seniors were recognized and presented with college scholarships. Many of the scholarships awarded that day were a result of the Utah College Application Week (UCAW) that the seniors participated in back in November.
Scholarships were awarded from United Way of Eastern Utah, Spencer’s Wishes, Emery Telcom, The National Honor Society, the Juanita Childs Scholarship, the family of Ethan Winter, various colleges such as Brigham Young University, Snow College and Utah State University, and more.
A whopping total of $1,897,396 was awarded to seniors on this day, which does not include private scholarships or other individual offers. It is estimated that there was an additional $15,000 to $20,000 awarded in private scholarships as well. The valedictorian and two salutatorians were also announced during the assembly.
