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) last week.
The Franklin B. Walter Scholarship is named in honor of the longtime State Superintendent who served between 1977 and 1991.
Students across the county were nominated for the honor by their school districts. Nomination criteria included student awards, activities, GPA and attendance.
