“This year, we weren’t able to present our Community Commitment Scholarship recipients with a certificate at their school’s Senior Awards Night, but I knew I wanted to do something to make the announcement special,” commented Gollakner. “I had their contact information from their applications, so I reached out to each of them to join me in a Zoom meeting to discuss a project Honor was doing to highlight high school seniors. Little did they know, I was about to tell them they each won a $1000 scholarship. Seeing the look on their faces was completely priceless!”
