Emily Mathew, a Bureau Valley High School graduate, has received a $2,000 scholarship from the Shelter Insurance Foundation. Shelter agent Rita J. Frank sponsors and partially funds this scholarship.
Beginning the fall after high school graduation, Mathew can direct the scholarship funds toward tuition, fees or campus housing for any course of study leading to an academic degree at any accredited college or university.
A committee of local high school officials and community leaders selected the local recipient. The committee considered each applicant’s scholastic achievements, educational goals, citizenship, moral character and participation and leadership in school and community activities. The scholarship is given without regard to race, disability, religion, national origin or gender of applicants.
