Foundation Names Inaugural APS Scholarship Winners

The APS Education Foundation recently announced the winners of the inaugural APS Scholarships. Funding came from “Paving the Way to Success,” a campaign where APS community members purchase engraved bricks and glass wall panels at the Professional Learning and Conference Center to raise funds for the scholarships. A scholarship of $4,000 was awarded to one student at each comprehensive high school. The winners are:
