The Missouri Chamber of Commerce and Industry has selected eight graduating high school seniors from around Missouri, including two from the listening area, to receive $1,000 scholarships through its Show-Me Scholars & Tech Masters program.
This program is a statewide effort to encourage Missouri high school students to study more rigorously by bringing local employers into classrooms to encourage them to make the most of their time in 8-12th grades. Students sign up as freshmen and pledge to complete at least 16.5 credit hours of high-value courses. Throughout their high school years, students receive encouragement from those business mentors to stay on track.
The statewide program is administered by the Missouri Chamber and at the local level relies on collaboration between school districts and their business communities.
From our listening area the Chillicothe Chamber of Commerce selected Seth Hansen and the St. Joseph Chamber of Commerce Ella Meadows as their scholarship recipients.
The scholarships are funded thanks to AT&T Missouri.
