The scholarship winners and their parents will be invited to attend BBB's Torch Awards for Marketplace Trust on June 15 at The Lake Club. BBB will also be honoring Accredited Businesses and leaders that exemplify BBB Standards for Trust.
“The essay topic is what does ethics and integrity mean to the student. It is wonderful to see how high school students recognize the importance of ethics and integrity in their lives,” said Carol Potter, President of the Better Business Bureau.
