Danielle Porter is the first of five high school seniors to win this year’s S.O.A.R. Scholarship.

The Davenport teen expressed special gratitude to her mom. 

Each winner receives a $500 scholarship to be used toward further education and training. 

To qualify, applicants submitted essay answers to questions geared at describing their S.O.A.R. characteristics, which are:

S – Strength
O – Optimism
A – Achievement
R – Resolve

The scholarships were awarded through a partnership between News 8 and The Sedona Group. 

The Sedona Group believes that supporting young adults in their education and training after high school is a key part of keeping our workforce and community competitive.
