Manatee School Counselor Association announces inaugural scholarship recipient

The Manatee School Counselor Association Awards Committee is incredibly pleased to announce that a recipient of their inaugural scholarship award has been selected! 

Ms. Grace Tripp is a student at Palmetto High School, who will start her post-secondary journey at State College of Florida in Fall 2024.  

The scholarship funds are donated by Manatee County school counselors through the Manatee County School Counselor Association. 

School counselors play an important role in helping students grow and mature throughout high school in regard to their academics, careers, and social/ emotional well-being. 

The Manatee School Counselor Association is proud to award their first ever scholarship this year in the amount of $1,000 to a very deserving student.

Applicants were asked to write how their school counselor made a difference.

This student's essay stood out among the rest.

Congratulations to Grace - and thank you to all the school counselors for what you do, every day!
