At the end of the 2015-2016 school year CARE awarded six $1,000 scholarships to selected high school seniors who demonstrated a personal commitment to making positive choices regarding the use of alcohol and other illegal drugs. The CARE team received 75 applications from 25 Dallas-area schools. Twelve finalists were chosen and then six winners were selected by the CARE Board of Directors and staff.
These students have shown leadership and character, and have been a role model to others by standing firm against peer pressure. Each recipient has been shown to reflect the ideals and goals of CARE as we strive to provide chemical addiction awareness and educational resources to the Dallas community.
We are incredibly grateful to the CARE Scholarship Committee who spent many hours reviewing applications and choosing our winners. Thank you to Andrea Bertrand (Committee Chair), Jennifer Miars, Cathy McDowell, Susan McCollum, and Martha Johnston.
