WILMINGTON, Del. (PRWEB) May 13, 2019
The I Could Do Great Things Foundation, founded in 2009 by Delaware philanthropists Stuart and Suzanne Grant, announced today the winners of the fourth annual Beau Biden Memorial Scholarship. High school senior Allison Stuebing of Wilmington will receive the gold prize of $10,000, with Alia Marshall of Rehoboth Beach, Benjamin Stewart of Middletown, and Julia Frank of Wilmington each receiving silver prizes of $5,000 for outstanding commitment to their communities.
Established in honor of the late Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden, the Scholarship honors college-bound high school seniors from Delaware who exemplify “the virtues of Beau: qualities of leadership, community, civility, respect, and a strong moral compass.”
The honoree selection committee reviewed applications from close to 100 accomplished high school seniors before naming the 2019 honorees.
“This year’s winners demonstrate a diverse range of achievements in service, from entrepreneurship to social activism,” said Stuart Grant. “We were blown away by what these students have already accomplished, and we are sure they will go on to do truly great things.”
