Scholarship opportunity from Slippery Rock Mayor Jondavid R. Longo:

 

                For the past three years, I have donated 100% of my Mayoral salary to Slippery Rock area charities and nonprofits.

                This year, I want to reward young people who are choosing to keep their many talents and abilities close to home.  To that effect, my Mayoral salary will be divided into quarters and awarded to four Slippery Rock Area High School seniors going to Slippery Rock University, Butler County Community College, Westminster College, Grove City College, or New Castle School of Trades.

                Eligible students must:

  • Be a graduating senior of Slippery Rock Area High School
  • Have a minimum GPA of 2.5
  • Be a member of one or more of the following organizations: SR Volunteer Fire Company, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Civil Air Patrol, Young Marines, Interact Club, Key Club, Habitat for Humanity, or a community service-oriented club, and
  • Have been accepted to one of the aforementioned institutions of higher education/trades.

 

To apply, submit the following to mayor@jondavidrlongo.us

  • A 3 – 5 paragraph essay on the importance of serving our community and practicing good citizenship. Cite examples of your own community service and how you plan to continue that service as a college or trade school student
  • Copy of your acceptance letter(s) to Slippery Rock University, Butler County Community College, Grove City College, Westminster College, or New Castle School of Trades
