By: Jiffy Lube
Selvy Thabet of Sam Barlow High School is the overall scholarship recipient and will receive a $4,500 scholarship award on behalf of Jiffy Lube. Elizabeth Prater of Columbia River High, Isabella Biondi of McNary High, and Jalen Patel of Clackamas High will each be awarded $1,500 as finalists.
The "What Drives You?" scholarship program is open to all high school students in the greater Portland, Salem, Vancouver and Longview areas.
Students are asked to submit a 500-word essay detailing what drives them now, as an opportunity to express their inner drive and ambitions. Finalists are selected based on their essay submission. Finalists are then required to submit a short 1-2 minute video that expands on the essay they submitted and then the overall winner is selected.
The scholarships are open to all students currently enrolled in high school regardless of test scores or grades.
Scholarship money will go directly towards secondary education, in the form of college or other qualified technical or professional program chosen by each winning student.
Sam Barlow High School will receive $500 for submitting the most essays for the 2019-2020 school year as part of the Jiffy Lube "What Drives You?" Scholarship Program.
