The accomplishments of 11 high school seniors were recognized by the MAX4Kids Foundation at a scholarship reception that took place on Thursday, May 3, in MAX’s Eastdale Community Room.

“MAX4Kids is honored to award scholarships to these eleven worthy recipients,” said Brooke Rollan, Community Relations and Foundation Coordinator. “We hope these scholarships lighten any financial burden that may come with the increasing cost of college tuition and give these students the opportunity to succeed in furthering their education.”

The 11 seniors from Montgomery, Autauga, Elmore and Lee counties were selected from nearly 80 applicants representing 25 different schools. MAX4Kids is awarding $55,000 in scholarships this year.
