KSS grad awarded scholarship

Sasha Schoch, the daughter of Ronald Schoch and Jill Schoch of Kelowna, is the recipient of a $2,500 General Mills Foundation Post-High School Scholarship for the 2011-2012 academic year.

Schoch is a first-year student at Rice University in Texas, where she is majoring in pre-law.

Schoch is a graduate of Kelowna Secondary School, where she ran girls’ track and ranked first in the 1,500 metres  and second in the 3,000 metres in B.C. and was a member of the National Honor Society.

The General Mills Foundation awarded 93 scholarships through its Post-High School Scholarship Program for the children of employees across the U.S.

The scholarships are based on criteria including academic record, demonstrated leadership participation in school and community activities, work experience, and a statement of goals and aspirations.

Scholarship America has the sole responsibility for selecting these recipients. Students receive awards of $500 to $3,000 per year for four years, based on financial need.
