Carson High School Seniors Earn More Than $1 Million in Scholarships
Carson City, NV — Nearly 70 Carson High School (CHS) Seniors were recognized Thursday night for collectively earning more than $1 million in scholarships (a number that will continue to rise). Their accomplishments were celebrated in a virtual awards ceremony, Thursday, May 14, which highlighted the academic success of the Class of 2020.
“Even though the conclusion of this unforgettable COVID-19 school year has not lived up to traditional expectations, these students have proved they are well prepared when they leave Carson High School,” CHS Principal Gavin Ward said. “These scholarship awards are a testament to that. We have students going on to military, technical schools, community colleges and major universities.”
We applaud all the local organizations and community support who’ve made a lot of these scholarships possible, he continued. The Class of 2020 has really embraced the opportunities available to them, and I couldn’t be more proud. I am excited about their futures and what they will do after high school.
Ward also noted the total amount of scholarships will continue to rise as graduation draws closer. Many applications have been extended due to schools being physically closed. So the overall all total in scholarships may be significantly higher than what is represented as of May 14, 2020.
