This blog post is the biggest, tastiest, scholarship sandwich you’ve ever seen. It took us a while, but we are ready to announce the winner of the $5,000 Cappex College Scholarship. This is the largest single scholarship Cappex has ever awarded.
But first, the appetizer: The winner of the Cappex Promoter Scholarship is Vi T. of Corona, Calif. Vi is a swim team captain who put in lots of laps to sign up students from across the country. This girl knows lots of people in lots of places. For her efforts, she’ll take home $2,000 for college.
Her friends are cashing in too. For signing up through Vi, Sarah B., from Kenedy, Texas, will also receive $1,000.
Congrats Sarah and Vi!
And now, the main course. Can you wait any longer? No? OK, here it is:
Rachel G.from Elmhurst, Ill., is the winner of the Cappex College Scholarship!
At first glance, Rachel looks like a lot of high school students: Plays basketball, has good grades, maybe wants to be a doctor. But a closer look at her profile shows she is taking it all to the next level. She’s done the spectacular, like spending a month working at an orphanage in Ghana. But she is a leader closer to home, too. She doesn’t just play basketball, she teaches others the sport, volunteering at camps and working with younger children.
Great work Rachel! Congratulations!
Thank you to everyone who applied. These decisions weren’t easy. It took us more than a month to review all the fascinating applicants. If you didn’t take home a scholarship there are still lots of Cappex college scholarships for which you can apply.
