Sheboygan County Christian senior Matthew Seider, one of three members of Lakeland College’s inaugural class of Sheboygan County Scholars, was all smiles as he celebrated with family, friends and administrators from both schools during a ceremonial scholarship signing event at Christian High School.
Similar signing ceremonies for fellow incoming Lakeland College Sheboygan County Scholars Zachery Mock of Howards Grove and Emma Schad from Sheboygan Falls are scheduled over the next couple of weeks.
Lakeland’s Sheboygan County Scholars program awards up to four full-tuition scholarships each year to deserving high school graduates from the county who carry a minimum grade point average of 3.5 or score at least a 27 on the ACT. Applicants must submit an essay and do an in-person interview with the scholarship committee.
