  • Bill Allder Memorial Scholarship - Number and Amount to be Determined

    Essay: “Do the Right Thing”, this was one of Bill’s favorite expressions. He believed that tough choices should be made in order to do the right thing. We believe that those who adhere to Bill’s standards ought to be rewarded for it. Tell us about a time in your life when you chose to “do the right thing”. All seniors in Loudoun County Public Schools have an equal opportunity to win the scholarship. We ask only that you do not refer to drugs, alcohol or cheating in school. Format: Size 12 Font, 1 – 2 pages. Proper spelling is appreciated (spell-check is a button you click in MS Word – you will need this skill in college). Please Note: The scholarship committee reserves the right not to award the scholarship(s) if it does not receive suitable applications. It is possible that more than one scholarship will be given. Amounts may vary but no less than $500 each.
