Three of Shortridge High School’s graduating seniors are preparing to transition from Blue Devils to Bulldogs; these International Baccalaureate program scholars received full-tuition scholarships to Butler University!
Community service is a pillar of the Shortridge philosophy, and the hours students log help them connect with our neighbors and gain valuable experience. Tia G. has completed more than 225 hours of community service so far throughout high school. Tia has also worked as a counselor at Jameson Camp and a Youth Tree Team Member for Keep Indianapolis Beautiful. In addition to holding an exemplary GPA, Tia is an accomplished athlete, playing basketball, soccer and ultimate Frisbee.
Aaliyah C. has logged 332 service hours in her high school career while maintaining a rigorous course load and extracurricular schedule. She serves on the Indiana State Museum’s Bicentennial committee, is a Center for Leadership Development student ambassador, and is the youngest Leader in Training for Keep Indianapolis Beautiful.
Jacob C. has a head start on his future studies as a participant in the Butler Early College Program. Jacob has worked with TeenWorks and Nextech for a variety of service and technology-related initiatives. He’s also an accomplished musician, playing euphonium, trombone and tuba in Shortridge’s concert Jazz and marching bands.
In a surprise schoolwide assembly, these three scholars learned they will be recognized for their achievement through Butler’s Tuition Guarantee Program; any funding gaps that remain after other scholarship opportunities are accounted for (i.e., 21st Century Scholars Program) will be covered by Butler!
We are so proud of these successful and service-oriented students, and look forward to following their continued achievements as Butler Bulldogs!
