2022 June Nelson Scholarship Winners!
The Association of Alaska School Boards is pleased to announce the winners of the 2022 June Nelson Memorial Scholarship!
Named in honor of long-time Kotzebue school board member and education advocate, the June Nelson Memorial Scholarship is an annual AASB tradition.
Each year, association members, students, and district superintendents gather to raise money to award to Alaskan students to support their post-high school education pursuits. This year’s successful fundraising efforts have allowed AASB to award fifteen, $1,500 scholarships, which may be applied toward the student’s choice of a business, trade, or college institution.
Of this year’s applicants, fourteen graduating Alaska high school seniors, and one college sophomore, were selected to receive June Nelson scholarships.
