Keihin Awards Scholarships to ECPS Seniors

Through the company’s Keihin Foundation Scholarship Program, a first-place scholarship at each school was awarded in the amount of $2,500. Up to three second-place scholarships of $1,000 are also granted to students at traditional high schools and one of the $2,500 scholarship recipients is selected as the winner of a four-year scholarship of $4,500 to be distributed in the amount of $1,500 in the first year and $1,000 per year for the remaining three years.

Autumn Jackson from SouthWest Edgecombe High School was selected as the overall winner.
