Congratulations to our 2016 AACCPTA Scholarship awardees. Northeast High School senior Baily Clark was selected to receive the $1000 general scholarship, named for philanthropist and PTA co-founder, Phoebe Apperson-Hearst. The Kenneth Lawson Education Scholarship, named in honor of one of our former deputy superintendents, has been presented to Christine Swartz of Severna Park High School.

The Anne Arundel County Council of PTAs currently offers two scholarships for seniors who will be graduating from an Anne Arundel Public High School. The Lawson Scholarship is available to any student seeking a course of study in education. The Phoebe Appersen Hearst Scholarship is available to a student who is planning to attend any post-secondary school, including community college or vocational school as well as college and university. Each scholarship is worth $1,000 and is paid directly to the school that the student will be attending.

Although it is not required that the school have a PTA/PTSA unit, the student's application will need to be signed by the president of a school PTA local unit. The following high schools are PTA schools: Annapolis, Chesapeake, Glen Burnie, Meade, North County, Northeast and Old Mill. The president of your school PTA/PTSA can sign your applications.

All other AACPS high schools and Phoenix are not PTA schools. Information on where you are able to go for a signature will be contained within the application.
