Thirty-six area high-school seniors have been named winners of the Long & Foster Real Estate, Inc., $200,000 Scholarship Program for the company's Northern Virginia region.
Outside financial aid experts selected the 200 total winners from across the company's seven-state Mid-Atlantic region and the District of Columbia based on: school leadership, academic success, extracurricular activities, community involvement, work outside of school, recommendation letters and personal essays. Each winner received a $1,000 scholarship to help them attend school in the fall. The objective of the Scholarship Program is to nurture students who show potential for lifelong leadership. Scholarships are awarded to well-rounded high school seniors, entering an accredited four-year college or university.
This years winners in Fairfax County include Jessica Kabaz-Gomez of Oakton High School, David Bahn of Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology High School and Brendan Fuller of Bishop Ireton High School.
