Applications for the Rachel Laird Scholarship are open. This scholarship has been established to honor the memory of Rachel Laird, a 2002 graduate of Conant High School. Rachel worked tirelessly for many Conant organizations and never settled for anything less than outstanding. She was always concerned about the needs of others and was heavily involved in community service work in her first two years at Bradley University. Rachel passed away of heart complications on February 23, 2004, having accomplished more in her 19 years than many do in a lifetime. This $500.00 scholarship is being offered for one year to a student who has shown a similar passion and dedication to activities at Conant High School. It is sponsored by Student Council. Please pick up an application outside of room 250. All applications are due in the main office by Friday, May 28, at 3:30. If you have any questions, please see Mr. Moravek in the Social Studies Department.
