Walter and Therese Cepela Scholarship ($1,000)

The Walter and Therese Cepela Scholarship provides an award to a graduating senior at Midland High School who is in the top 10% of his/her graduating class, but who has had to work hard for his/her grades and therefore has not been as active in extracurricular or community activities as some other students. The essay should describe personal background, specific interests and/or career goals, and should address why this student feels he/she meets the qualifications for this scholarship.
