High School Awards and Scholarship Night

Published On: May 16th, 2024|Categories: Blog|

This week was Awards night at the local high school. Seniors were awarded certificates and medals for their achieving National Honor Society and various grade point average milestones.

Also on the agenda was the awarding of college scholarships by assorted groups, organizations, and companies to deserving seniors.

PlastiCert participated again, offering up two different scholarships seniors could apply for. The first of which is named in honor of our company’s founder Howard Ysteboe. Howard was quite a talented engineer and so we offer $2,000 to a senior going into engineering (primary) or one of technical sciences (secondary). We also offer a $1,000 scholarship that represents all our coworkers,  but named in honor of two coworkers that succumbed to cancer. This scholarship is offered to a senior going into the medical or social services field, both areas that were critical during cancer treatment.

The Founder’s Engineering/Sciences Scholarship for a future engineering student was awarded to an amazing young man that has excelled throughout his time at LAHS. He Is not just technically and Math academic (4.0 GPA through HS) but active in theater on the stage and behind the stage, band, Math League, and Knowledge Bowl. He has started his own Espy business using an improved 3D printer to sell flow hoods for mushroom growing. He created multicolored hall passes for the HS teachers to use in their classrooms and many other items. He is off to pursue electrical engineering, hoping to go into aerospace.

I was then able to award our J&N Memorial Scholarship to a very bright young lady that has chosen the medical field. Going into radiography is her goal after participating in “Scrub Classes” at the local university as well as taking multiple PSEO medical orientation classes. She has carried a 4.0 GPA all through HS while being a 3 sport athlete and volunteering in school and around the community.

PlastiCert is honored to provide these two young individuals with financial assistance toward fulfilling their career dreams wherever they may lead them.
