Join Us! The POB Chamber Scholarship Committee will be meeting in March (exact date to follow) to read and judge anonymous essays written by college bound POB JFK High School seniors.
Always a fun and rewarding experience, the committee will choose three essays with two themes: The $1,000 scholarship essays address “What Plainview Means to Me,” and the $500 scholarship (two given) essays explore innovative local business ideas. The latter two are given annually by the chamber in memory of Marcia Finkelstein, a former beloved board member, who chaired the committee for many years.
The judging will begin at 7:00pm and take place at one of the POB schools. (Pizza and salad provided!) It’s approximately a 2 hour time commitment. Please contact scholarship committee chair Cheryl Dender as soon as possible if you can commit to joining us. firstname.lastname@example.org.
Important note: If you currently have a senior student at POB JFK High School, we kindly ask that you do not participate this year.
