Employees and children of employees of companies or organizations who are current members of the Piedmont Human Resource Association will be eligible to apply. Scholastic merit is the principal criteria used in selecting scholarship recipients.
PHRA offer a $1000 scholarship to a deserving recipient each year. The scholarship enables us to support others who are pursuing their dreams by beginning or advancing their education. The recipient must meet the criteria established in our by-laws in order for them to attend an accredited two or four year undergraduate college or university. Scholastic merit is the principal criteria used in selecting a scholarship recipient; however, extra-curricular activities, such as sports, clubs, community activities, civic projects, and involvement with their church are also important and taken into consideration.
This year’s winner is Madison Norket. Madison is a senior at Maiden High School and wants to pursue a career in Biological Studies at the University of Alabama or North Carolina State. Madison is the Vice President of the student body, the President of the senior class, and the secretary of the Beta Club. In addition to her scholastic achievements, she played varsity soccer, ran cross-country, is a student athletic trainer and is the yearbook editor. Madison’s career goal is to become an obstetrician. While on a mission trip to Ghana in 2013, Madison saw the lack of women’s healthcare so prevalent in third world countries that her hope after completing her education is to return to similar environments to fill the gap and make a difference in the lives of women. Madison was joined by her mother, who is an employee at one of our member companies, Transportation Insight. Congratulations to Madison.
