The McKinley High Alumni Association formally awarded $1,000 scholarships to eight 2019 McKinley High graduates.
The students were selected last school year for the scholarships based on their academic accomplishment and letters describing their financial needs.
Some of the students were already in school when the actual checks were distributed, so a parent or other relative participated in the award ceremony at a recent Association meeting.
Those receiving scholarships included: Ashley Jones, Alexis Foster, Dareon Verret, Amari Ross, Evan Jupiter, Asiah Lee, Shekinah Escort and Carter Tucker. (Pictured Below)
