November 02, 2010

The Better Business Bureau of Delaware Education Foundation is pleased to announce its 2nd Annual Student Ethics Scholarship. This year, we are excited to say that we have expanded our Scholarship and will now award TWO $2,500 Scholarships to students graduating in the Class of 2011.

Judges will select the scholarship recipients based on their overall leadership, contributions to the community and school, academic accomplishments and written essay. “We are very proud of last year’s recipient, Marcy McKee from Milford High School, who is now a Freshman at Methodist University. The BBB looks forward to adding 2 more outstanding names to the list of winners,” said Christine Sauers, BBB of Delaware President.

In keeping with the BBB Education Foundation’s goals, we have developed this award as a way to focus on ethics with young adults who are on the cusp of their careers, planning their post secondary education and focusing on future goals. Ethics and integrity will shape their professional and personal experiences throughout their lives, and it is our hope that this award will encourage interested students to consider and articulate their commitment to high ethical behavior.

The BBB is an organization of businesses that join together to support, develop and encourage an ethical marketplace.
