VERO BEACH – Piper Aircraft has awarded their annual William T. Piper Scholarship to Vero Beach High School senior, Miss Lorena Molina.

The William T. Piper Scholarship has been awarding scholarships for more than 20 years. The program is available to a graduating senior of Vero Beach High School, Sebastian River High School, or an Indian River Charter High School.

The scholarship awards $1,000 per year to a student and is renewable for up to four years. High school applicants must demonstrate strong academics, exhibit leadership abilities, be able to show involvement in the community and have extra-curricular activities.

In addition, all applicants must submit an essay describing the student’s greatest success thus far.

“This year we received over forty highly qualified applications for the William T. Piper scholarship”, said Jackie Carlon, Director of Marketing and Communications.

Carlon says that members of Our Community Outreach Committee review each application and consider all of the eligibility criteria.

“We were beyond impressed at the quality of the applicants as well as the level of their community involvement and their commitment to continuing their education,” Carlon added.

Congratulations Lorena Molina!
