One Germantown Academy student was among 24 high school seniors from the Greater Philadelphia and Lehigh Valley region that were recognized by the Green Family Foundation and Firstrust Bank at the 54th annual Samuel A. Green Scholarship program ceremony. Nearly 450 students applied for the scholarships this year.
Sam Wang '23, along with the other deserving students were celebrated in a ceremony at the Firstrust Bank Club at Lincoln Financial Field on May 16. Wang was one of three students who were the recipients of two-year scholarships totaling $25,000 each.
The Samuel A. Green Scholarship Program, one of the region’s most renowned high school scholarship programs, granted two-year college scholarships ranging from $5,000 to $12,500 per year to community-minded seniors. Recipients were selected based on their written responses to a topic that is rooted in the mission of the Foundation, “How will you use your college education to make a substantial impact in your community?” and a letter of recommendation attesting to their demonstrated leadership.
