Cellcom has selected 16 graduating high school seniors from across its service area to receive $750 scholarships, including Hailey Gaedtke of Kewaunee High School.
“Cellcom is proud to award scholarships to a remarkable group of students who have already made an impact in their communities,” said Cindy Durand, director of public affairs at Cellcom. “The Class of 2020 completed their high school careers under unprecedented circumstances, and we salute all of the seniors for their determination and perseverance. Each of our recipients has been actively involved in their schools and their leadership qualities will help them adapt now and in the future.”
Recipients were selected on the basis of community involvement, academic record, potential to succeed, leadership and participation in school activities, honors, work experience and an essay on community impact. Applicants were also required to reside within a county in Wisconsin or Michigan where Cellcom operates and be planning to enroll in a full-time undergraduate course of study at an accredited two- or four-year college, university or technical school.
