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.  That is why they have partnered with WQAD News 8 to recognize outstanding high school seniors through our S.O.A.R. Scholarship program.

We are looking for seniors that best exemplify the S.O.A.R. characteristics.

S – Strength of character
O – Creating Opportunities to give back to the community
A – Achievement in academics and voluntarism
R – Resolve shown when faced with an adversarial situation
