On Tuesday, April 16th the Foundation hosted the Annual Straight “A” Luncheon at Jeff Ruby’s Steakhouse. With support from the Harold C. Schott Foundation, all 18 of our Tri-State senior finalists went home with $2,000 scholarships to help further their education.
At the luncheon, all our finalists courageously shared their stories of adversity, and it was clear that in no way have they let those adversities stop them from achieving incredible things. We are honored to now be a small part of their story.
Meet our incredible finalists!
All these finalists fulfill the Foundation’s redefined meaning of Straight “A”s. Our finalists are pursuing Academic excellence, Athletic Achievement, are Actively serving in the community while possessing a strong Ambition, a winning Attitude and the ability to overcome Adversity.
From the 18, Anthony selected an overall male and female winner. With such amazing students, this year was no easy choice! The overall Straight “A” Students of 2019 were Jasmine Asberry from Butler Tech and Colerain High School and Hunter Fletcher from Little Miami High School. Both finalists received an additional $3,000 scholarship, for a total of $5,000.
Jasmine is a student at Colerain High School where she has been involved in athletics and activities such as cheerleading, dance, Key Club, RISE and Honor Society all while maintaining a 3.95 GPA.
