The Pathfinder High School Scholarship Awards are presented each year to high school seniors in Palm Beach and Martin counties who have demonstrated outstanding achievement in 18 academic, vocational and athletic categories — to recognize excellence and to encourage these students to one day bring their considerable talents to the communities where each received a start on the path to a good education and a rewarding career.
Pathfinders is sponsored by Cox Media Group Palm Beach, publisher of The Palm Beach Post and Palm Beach Daily News.
Nominees will meet with judges for personal interviews and/or performances on March 11, 2015, at Palm Beach Atlantic University. College scholarships of $4,000 for the first-place winner, $3,000 for the second-place winner, $2,500 for the third-place winner and $2,000 to the fourth-place winner in each category will be presented at a ceremony on May 13, 2015, at the Raymond F. Kravis Center for the Performing Arts in West Palm Beach.
Top winners in each category will also receive the special “astrolabe” trophy, a symbol for the path each student may follow in the world and the leadership and direction each may provide for others in the future.
Congratulations to our 2014-2015 nominees! Please wish them luck as they continue in the competition.
