TRUSSVILLE — Trussville To Go (T2GO) will be providing a $2,500 scholarship to one junior or senior within the T2GO delivery area.
If you’re a student at Trussville, Huffman, Clay, Pinson, or a homeschool program, be sure to download the application and submit your essay by April 15, 2022. Applications can be downloaded at www.t2goscholarships.com
Applicants for the scholarship must compose an essay with no more than 2,500 words.
T2GO is a local restaurant delivery company servicing the greater Trussville area. Ben and Amanda Short formed the T2GO scholarship to give back to the communities that have supported T2GO’s mission of delivering local meals.
There was a two-way tie in the scholarship’s first year, and Isabella Weyerman (Hewitt-Trussville) and Marques McKinney (Clay Chalkville) won a T2GO scholarship. In addition, Abby Weems (Hewitt-Trussville) was awarded the 2021 T2GO scholarship.
“In years past, the scholarship was only open to graduating seniors, but we wanted to open it up this year to give juniors a chance at winning the scholarship as well,” Ben Short said. “We are grateful for this community and are blessed to be able to offer the scholarship for the third year, we look forward to reading the essays from this year’s applicants.”
This year’s topic(s):
- How can you, as a high school senior, go about helping creative positive social change in your community?
- What is your favorite thing about Trussville, and where do you think we can improve/grow as a community?
