Our “GoEnnounce Yourself ” Scholarship, sponsored by Upromise, awards one student $500 each month! This award goes to a student who’s doing a great job showcasing who he/she is, by sharing school related e-nnouncement updates with Followers on their GoEnnounce Student Page. We are happy to e-nnounce our December winner… the multi talented Courtney Thurston!
Courtney Thurston is a senior at Commonwealth Connections Academy, a tuition-free public cyber school in PA. This online school cyber school is very unique because it gives students the flexibility to learn at home with a curriculum that meets rigorous state education standards. It even allows high school students, such as Courtney, to take full-time jobs while in school (how awesome is that!). At CCA, Courtney has won many awards and honors, including some in design and robotics. She is a member of many clubs ranging from National Honor Society to Robotics Club to the Red Cross Club (just to name a few). Courtney has even co-founded Magikstra, a way for high school students to connect with mentors and is currently the COO. If you aren’t impressed enough already – we also want to mention her longtime involvement as an editor of Wikipedia!!
In December, Courtney e-nnounced that she applied and won many scholarships: the Space Club Keynote Scholarship, the Stop Hunger Now Scholarship, GE-Reagan Scholarship, and many others. She also shared how she was asked to write for the Huffington Post (and graciously accepted)! On top of these accolades, we were super impressed to see Courtney receive a Certificate of Merit for scoring one of the highest grades on the SAT’s in Pennsylvania. Way to go Courtney! She also e-nnounced that her name, photo and biography were posted on the IEEE WIE International Leadership Conference website, highlighting her as a speaker for one of their empowerment panels. What a busy student! To learn more about why we selected Courtney as our December scholarship award recipient, check out her Student Page here!
