Two Gil Morrison Memorial Scholarships were presented at the Sandwich High School Senior Awards Night on May 15.

Logan Scalf and Caroline Welte were the second annual recipients. Applications were anonymously reviewed by a committee of seven educators who ranked each applicant based on grade-point average and financial need, as well as involvement in school and community activities. Congratulations to Scalf and Welte as they pursue their futures.

Gil Morrison, for whom the scholarship is named, was in education for 34 years at Sandwich Schools and served as the DeKalb County Regional Superintendent. He coached sports, speech team, directed plays and taught language arts, social studies, and the Challenge Program in School District 430. The committee looks forward to awarding this annual scholarship in the coming years.
