Rockford High School student awarded scholarship

Ed-QuillanCrystal Quillan of Rockford has been awarded a scholarship by the Two Ten Footwear Foundation. She was chosen from more than 500 applicants to this year’s program, and has decided to use the award to attend Central Michigan University.

The Two Ten Footwear Foundation Scholarship Program was established in 1969 to provide need-based scholarships to people in the footwear, leather and allied industries. The program helps students meet the costs of higher education at colleges, vocational/technical schools, and nursing programs. Annual awards range from $200 to $3,000 and may be renewed. Two Ten grants scholarships on the basis of academic achievement, community involvement, personal promise, and financial need. Since the program began, $14 million has been awarded in scholarships to 6,000 students.

For more information about the Two Ten scholarship program, contact the Scholarship Department at 1466 Main St., Waltham, MA 02451. Applications will soon be available for the 2009-2010 academic year.
