Outstanding high school seniors who have a 3.5 or higher GPA, who display a leadership role in extra-curricular school activities, and who participate in recognizable community volunteer efforts are eligible to be considered for this monthly award from The Center Foundation.
All High Desert Hero nominations must be received by The Center Foundation (TCF) by 5pm February 8 to be considered for March, April and May awards. Nominations may be submitted by family members, employers, friends and school representatives.
In an effort to acknowledge “what is right with kids,” the TCF board selects one nominated student each month of the school year to receive the prestigious High Desert Hero award. Each High Desert Hero receives a $250 mini-scholarship from Bigfoot Beverages (formerly Pepsi), a $25 gift certificate, a medallion and appears on My Window. Additionally, the High Desert Hero has an audio profile aired on the five stations of Horizon Broadcasting Group during his or her month. In the winter/spring of 2013 the High Desert Heroes are eligible to compete for the William K. Worrell, $5,000 college scholarship.
To find the nomination form, go to www.centerfoundation.org High Desert Hero or contact Lauri Bonn at 541-322-2321.
