Honorees are Aubrial Harrington and Ashley Knister from the Verde Valley Campus, and Raymond Rosas and Brittany Sheldahl from the Prescott Campus. Rosas was selected to the first team, Harrington and Sheldahl to the second team and Knister to the third team.
Students must apply for these scholarships, which a Yavapai College committee awards based on academic achievement, leadership and community service.
Harrington is taking a general studies curriculum and is leaning toward continuing her education at Northern Arizona University (NAU). Knister is a music major who plans to attend NAU in the fall. Rosas is working toward his associate of arts degree and plans to attend University of Arizona. Sheldahl, an English major, is on track to transfer to Arizona State University.
As a first team selection, Rosas qualifies for the College Team, which puts him in the running for an additional $2,500 cash award, trophy and extensive national recognition through coverage in USA TODAY and usatoday.com.
