Sheboygan North senior Dante Williams signed a ceremonial letter-of-intent in front of family and friends on Wednesday, signifying his full-tuition, four-year leadership-based scholarship to Lakeland College.
Williams is one of four 2016 members of Lakeland’s Sheboygan County Scholars program, which each year selects up to four deserving local seniors to enter the program.
Future signing ceremonies will honor fellow 2016 Sheboygan County Scholars Lauren Bruggink (Oostburg), Brandon Herrin (Plymouth) and Shyanne Koski (Random Lake).
Starting in fall, the four new Sheboygan County Scholars will join the three members of last year’s first class: Zachery Mock (Howards Grove), Matthew Seider (Sheboygan Christian) and Emma Schad (Sheboygan Falls).
Sheboygan County Scholars are chosen from candidates with at least a 3.5 grade point average or a 27 on the SAT. Finalists are interviewed by a committee made up of Lakeland College employees. This year’s winners were among 16 highly qualified finalists.
While at Lakeland, Sheboygan County Scholars will participate in an exclusive leadership development program that includes one-on-one meetings with area CEOs and other successful professionals.
