2019 Senior Scholarship Winners!

The MRHS Booster Club is pleased to announce the 2019 winners of their $2000 Scholarship.  Each applicant was evaluated on their response to the question, “How did I make a difference at Marriotts Ridge High School?”   

​​ The 2019 Boosters Senior Scholarships were awarded to Elisabeth Degenford  and  Vinay Parikh.
While maintaining impressive academic achievements, Elisabeth Degenford also exuberated artistic and creative abilities which impressed the judges in her personal statement application. It is this uniqueness of having intellect, leadership and innovation that will take her far into a nursing career. She participated in key club, had multiple awards in the MRHS Music program and countless hours dedicated to our Theater program.  You may know her best, however, for her amazing 2 year dedication as our MRHS drum Major!  Congratulations Elisabeth! 
Vinay Parikh has a clear vison for where he aspires to go in life and career.  During his time at MRHS he dedicated unprecedented volunteer hours and community service, and had unparalleled passion for building both the membership participation and quality of the Health Occupations Students of America club. Under his leadership the club has tripled in size and provided members with amazing opportunities to volunteer and foster their love and passion for the medical field. Whether it was participating in Light the Night Walk for Leukemia and Lympoma, hosting school blood drives, scheduling CPR certification classes or sending cards to hospitalized children, the future looks bright in the field of medicine with someone like Vinay!
