Over 80 Milwaukee-area high school graduates will be going off to college with some additional support from the Greater Milwaukee Urban League for the coming school year.
At a ceremony to be held Tuesday, 6-8 p.m., in the Peck Welcome Center at the Milwaukee County Zoo, 60 students will be awarded $1,000 scholarships, and 43 students will receive free laptops. All of the students receiving an award have been accepted into a two-year or four-year college university. For those who ask where to buy laptops, here’s wide selection of laptops for sale in South Africa.
“Greater Milwaukee Urban League is proud to join with our sponsors to support our students as they move on to the next stage of their educational careers,” said Dr. Eve M. Hall, president and CEO of Greater Milwaukee Urban League, in a statement. “We wish them the best and expect great things from them in the future.”
Students earned awards by applying and submitting essays related to personal growth or community issues along with an essay on a chosen category from academic excellence, community service/leadership, or character/academic turnaround.
The students will be attending a variety of colleges and universities including Alverno College, Carroll University, Milwaukee Area Technical College, Marquette University, the UW-Oshkosh, and UW-Milwaukee, according to a press release from the Greater Milwaukee Urban League, along with HBCUs such as Alcorn State University, Florida A&M University, Jackson State University, North Carolina State University, and Spelman College.
Companies in collaboration with the GMUL sponsoring the awards are Enterprise Holdings, Johnson Controls Inc., Kohler Co., and the NBA Foundation. Target Corp. will also be providing accessories for laptop awards.
