Nonprofit doles out scholarships at PCHS
The Park City Community Foundation has awarded Joseph James Morelli Scholarships to three students at Park City High School. According to a press release, graduating seniors Avery Israel, Albany Miller and Juan Suarez are this year's recipients of the annual scholarship. Marcy Abate, chair of the scholarship selection committee, said in the release that the foundation was inspired by the students' accomplishments, both in and out of the classroom. The scholarship, established in 2014, rewards students who are interested in science, technology, engineering and math who have had to overcome learning challenges. The deadline to apply for next year's awards is March 15. More information is available at parkcitycf.org/morelli/.
