CRESTVIEW — Crestview High School seeks local businesses’ help to fund this year's Crestview Community Partners Scholarships.

The scholarships help CHS applicants pay for tuition or text books at their chosen college or technical school, said Jessica Conner, a program organizer along with fellow teacher Sharon Criddle.

Funds go toward tuition or the textbooks, Conner said.

Application process

All seniors who apply are eligible, Conner said. However, recipients will be student applicants in good academic standing, working their way through high school, who can best state how the financial aid will help them.

"They have to explain (in an essay) how they are planning to give back to community once they are finished with their post-high school education," Conner said.

The applicant must list her or his extracurricular activities, work history and add an employer and teacher’s endorsement.
