MPS Class of 2018 Breaks Last Year’s Scholarship Record by Earning $71 Million in Scholarships
Montgomery Public Schools graduating class of 2018 eclipsed last year’s record earnings of $49 million in college scholarship by gathering over $71,260,000 in offers. This includes two students who were offered more than $1 million each.
MPS Superintendent Ann Roy Moore is excited for the senior class.
“The cost of attending colleges and universities makes scholarships necessary for many students,” said Superintendent Moore. “This money will certainly provide some of our graduates opportunities they would not ordinarily have. It is also a reflection of the excellent work our teachers and administrators have done to help prepare these students for college.”
Topping this year’s list of schools earning scholarships – LAMP Magnet with Lee High School and Park Crossing, two traditional schools, next in earnings.
LAMP High School $21,781,436
