The Francis Wayland Park Scholar of the Month Program is an academic recognition award developed to promote academic recognition of students. A panel of seven judges chosen from prominent citizens and business leaders in the state make the selection of the Scholar of the Month. In May, all monthly winners and their families will be honored at an awards ceremony. At that time, the Francis Wayland Parker Scholar of the Year will be announced and awarded a $2000 scholarship. To learn more about the program, see your counselor.
