The Developing Community Leaders Award is given to graduating seniors from Hanover’s public high schools who demonstrate strong leadership potential and a mindset of community betterment. Applicants must intend to continue their education at a two or four-year college or vocational training school. A team of reviewers assessed applicants on an essay response, an outside recommendation, their activities and community involvement, any employment to date, their academic performance, financial need and their interest or potential in leadership or business fields in hopes of gathering a full picture of the student. Recipients were selected through a two-phase review process.
Each of the six $1,000 scholarships listed below are made possible by the financial support of Camptown Charities and Foundation donors - we are so very grateful for their continued partnership.
The 2020 Developing Community Leaders Award recipients are:
Megan Brooks, Lee-Davis HS: Megan is an accomplished scholar and athlete whose application and recommendation show strong leadership skills, a desire to learn and the ability to grow.
Cady Cordle, Lee-Davis HS: Cady’s driven spirit, gift for collaboration and hope for a stronger community set her apart and will surely enable her future success.

This year we hope to celebrate with students and their families at a summer event, as we have in previous years, though this will depend on the pandemic conditions. The Hanover Chamber Foundation congratulates all scholarship nominees and the 2020 recipients – we are fortunate to have so many outstanding students in our county!
