Each year Shasta Head Start presents an Eva Johnson Memorial Scholarship to one graduating high school senior who is an alumnus of a Head Start program and is planning to continue their education in a college, university, or technical school setting. The Eva Johnson Memorial Scholarship Fund was established in memory of Eva Johnson. Eva was a child care provider for many years, a dynamic leader in the Martin Luther King community, and served on Shasta Head Start’s Board of Directors. She was a true friend to children everywhere, no matter what their background.
The purpose of the Eva Johnson Memorial Scholarship program is to recognize alumni of Head Start in academic achievement, and school and community involvement. Our goal is to encourage high school seniors to pursue postsecondary education in a public or non-public college, university, or technical school. We award one $1,000 scholarship to a high school graduate, graduating from a high school located in either Shasta, Siskiyou, or Trinity County. For the academic year of 2019-2020, the $1,000 Eva Johnson Memorial Scholarship is being sponsored by the Redding Bank of Commerce. This is a competitive scholarship.
Deadline for the application is April 12, 2019 by 5:00 p.m. Type or print legibly. Illegible applications will be returned. Applications postmarked after this date will not be considered. No emailed or incomplete applications will be considered.
