And the 2012 Crooms AoIT Alumni Association Community Scholarship Recipient Is...

The recipient of the 6th annual Crooms AoIT Alumni Community Scholarship is Rebecca B. Our review team was impressed with all of the applicants – however, we only have one scholarship to give. As we reviewed the applications, all of the students had unique strengths that made them excellent candidates: high GPAs, involvement in school activities, and various community involvement efforts. But, one student really stuck out for their community service.

Yes, there was Rebecca's involvement with Student Government, Beta Club, Relay for Life, and National Honor Society – but, there were two other activities that blew us away:

  1. The first activity was Crooms' much under-appreciated Teen Trendsetters club. The Teen Trendsetters program at Crooms AoIT serves as mentors to young children from Goldsboro Elementary here in Sanford. This year's recipient has been involved with Teen Trendsetters for 3 years and has even served as President.
  2. If her involvement in Teen Trendsetters were not enough, this year's recipient also traveled to Uganda this past summer to volunteer with children in that country as well.

Without further ado, congratulations to Rebecca, and congratulations to the Class of 2012!

The Crooms AoIT Alumni Association Community Scholarship is meant to honor a student that exemplifies not only academic and extracurricular achievement, but also demonstrates a dedication to community service and involvement. The scholarship totals $600.00 and is supported by donations from recent graduates. You can support the Crooms AoIT Alumni Scholarship by joining the Crooms AoIT Alumni Association, Inc. by visiting
