The 2018 Highpointers Scholarship was announced in the 2Q issue of Apex to Zenith.
The essays of the three winners may be read in their entirety under the Scholarship drop down at https://highpointers.org/highpointers-club-scholarship/
This marks the third year of the club’s scholarship, and most likely the last due to changes in the club. We believe this initiative successfully engaged students with the learning aspects of highpointing.
We thank the following students for participating and wish them well in their studies and in their pursuit of highpoints. We thank the volunteers who gave many hours of their time to establish this scholarship, and to the many donors who funded the awards.

I would like to thank all the 2018 Highpointers Scholarship participants. This year we received six outstanding essays for the Highpointers Scholarship Program.
The 2018 Highpointers Scholarship winners are Caroline Baker, Joseph Cermak, and Alison Blake. Each of this year’s winners have been awarded with a $500.00 check from the Highpointers Scholarship Fund. Congratulations!!
I would like to thank volunteers Kathy and John Mitchler, Marion Bauman, Lizzie Brammer and Laura Newman for making this year’s judging a success.
It has been an honor for me to be involved with the Scholarship Program because of the opportunities it gives our younger members. It was also an honor for me to present the first three years of Scholarship Awards for the club. It’s time for me to move on now and let others lead this great program into the future. Good Luck!
Bomber Brown, Scholarship Chair
