19 Eden Prairie Seniors received FEPS Student Scholarship Awards
On Thursday May 19, the Eden Prairie High School Auditorium was filled with outstanding high school seniors and their family members, friends, school staff, and community well-wishers, as the annual student scholarship ceremony presenters recognized and paid tribute to the many students receiving scholarships for their post-secondary education.  Thanks to the generosity of the many individuals who have chosen the FEPS Board of Directors to be caring stewards of their funds and administer their scholarships each year.  Once again, FEPS overwhelmingly led the pack of organizations offering scholarships awarding 14 scholarships, which were presented to 19 students, for a total of $64,000 in scholarships — the largest award in the history of FEPS!
Dr. Lisa Sisinni, Executive Director for FEPS, noted that, “it is such a fun experience to learn about these amazing seniors who maintain high academic achievements while involving themselves in numerous extra-curricular activities, community service activities, and important volunteer and job responsibilities.  They also have the biggest dreams ever for their future, and every time the evening ends I think, this is why FEPS is so important, as we are able to financially assist those students to make their dreams become a reality!”
This year FEPS added two more student scholarship opportunities, The Boyd-Estall Family LGBTQ+ and Allies Scholarship and The Jonas Wagner “Viva la Vida” Memorial Scholarship.  Anna Anderson, FEPS Chair of the Board, commented that, “FEPS appreciates the opportunity to add new scholarships that reach different sectors and interests of our student body.  We look forward to continuing to build our scholarship offerings in the future.”  Congratulations to all of our Student Scholarship Recipients!
