Lenfest Scholars 23

Dr. Nicholas Guarente, Superintendent of Big Spring School District, announced at the June 5th School Board Meeting, three juniors have been selected to be 2023 Lenfest Scholars.  Congratulations to Sophia Alampiev, Brayden Bailey, and Peyton Weekley!

The Lenfest College Scholarship Program is a competitive scholarship program where scholars become part of a family that provides academic, career, and life guidance. The program has positively altered the educational opportunities of public schools in rural central Pennsylvania by offering up to $12,000 per year toward college costs.

Congratulations to Lenfest Scholarship finalists Jessica Lewis, Max Long, and Megan Zimmerman who will receive $3,000 toward their first year of college tuition.

Board Member Bill Swanson also shared at the School Board Meeting more than 1.4 million dollars in scholarship money was awarded to Big Spring students this year and High School students earned an impressive cumulative total of 175 college credits through a dual enrollment program offered by the District.

The Administration, Board, and Staff of Big Spring School District congratulate Sophia, Brayden, Peyton and all scholarship recipients on their hard work and academic success.
