One graduating senior from each DPS high school received a $1,000 Franklin B. Walter Scholarship provided by the Montgomery County Educational Service Center (MCESC).
Nomination criteria included student awards, activities, GPA and attendance. Students were also asked to write an essay about a teacher that has positively impacted their lives. Those teachers will receive $500 to spend on classroom materials.
