City of Troy & SAFEbuilt Sponsor Youth Achievement Scholarship Award
(Troy, MI) – The City of Troy is hosting the 6th annual Youth Achievement Scholarship Award sponsored by SAFEbuilt, Inc. for all high school students residing in the City of Troy.
The Youth Achievement Awards will honor and recognize those youth who have made a significant impact on the Troy community through volunteer work and/or other special deeds and actions, and who demonstrate exceptional leadership and career/academic purpose. The Youth Achievement Awards will be for two categories:
- One $1000 scholarship awarded to a graduating high school senior
- One $500 scholarship awarded to a student in ninth, tenth, or eleventh grade.
SAFEbuilt’s core values of service, teamwork, improvement, integrity and respect are very evident based on their performance within the City of Troy” Community Affairs Director Cindy Stewart said. “SAFEbuilt’s involvement in this annual scholarship program shows their commitment to the communities they serve and it will be an honor to recognize some of our Troy teens who also work hard serving Troy.”
“The two students who won last year, Eva Lisowski and Meghan Romig, were excellent examples of our involved and dedicated teens who demonstrated exceptional leadership and career/academic purpose,” Stewart added. Eva and Meghan are finishing up their freshman year in college, Eva at the Massachusetts Institute Technology in Boston and Meghan at University of Michigan’s School of Nursing.
“SAFEbuilt is proud to support the local youth and the City of Troy by offering this scholarship opportunity,” SAFEbuilt Building Official Paul Featherston said.
