Black Diamond Harley-Davidson scholarships awarded
For 11 years, Black Diamond Harley-Davidson has been awarding scholarships to students who choose to remain in the local region to attend school. The scholarships are valued at $1,000 each. This year, 12 local students from the Shawnee Community College District were among the scholarship recipients.
To be eligible, scholarship recipients must demonstrate a strong work ethic and cooperative work skills. They must also be enrolled in their district’s community college for the summer 2019 semester and/or fall 2019 semester. Recipients were nominated and chosen by their school’s administrative staff and faculty.
