Graduating seniors earn more than $152,000 in scholarships supported by Penn Manor community

Members of the Penn Manor Class of 2024 received more than $152,000 in scholarships and awards during the 57th Annual Commencement Awards Ceremony, held May 23 at Penn Manor High School.

A total of 115 students received over 150 scholarships to assist them with their college and career plans after high school. The awards included 79 scholarships totaling more than $120,000 administered through the Penn Manor Education Foundation.

The awards are supported by local individuals, families, businesses and organizations. Among them are several substantial scholarships.

Ava Herr received the $14,000 Lee “Todd” Amigh Memorial Scholarship, and Carly Railing received the $5,000 Bree Taryn Caffey Memorial Scholarship. Both of these awards were established in 2022 in honor of Penn Manor community members.

The Amigh scholarship honors Lee Todd Amigh’s commitment to environmental education and was established by her husband, former Penn Manor physical education teacher Jim Amigh. The Caffey scholarship honors 2007 Penn Manor graduate Bree Taryn Caffey and was established by her family to support a student pursuing a nursing career.

In addition, Josiah Keller received the $4,000 Donald Pollock Memorial Scholarship, and Olivia Ditzler earned the $4,000 Joan Pollock Memorial Scholarship, both established to honor Penn Manor community members.

In addition to these scholarships, 12 Penn Manor seniors enrolled in Lancaster County Career & Technology Center programs earned 15 CTC scholarships and awards

We can’t thank our community members and businesses enough for their generosity in supporting Penn Manor students as they pursue education after high school.

Congratulations, and best wishes, to these students!
