In 1987, Newport High School parent Carla Vendeland created the PTSA Knight Valor program recognizing Newport High School students who made a difference in their community through their extraordinary volunteer efforts.  Mrs. Vendeland passed away in 1994 and in her memory and in honor of her dedication to our community, the Carla B. Vendeland Scholarship was established in 1996.  Usually at least one student will receive a $1,000 scholarship.

To qualify for the scholarship, students need to be a graduating senior and need to have earned the PTSA Knight Valor Award.

The scholarship deadline is Mid-May.  Watch our site for an announcement about the scholarship deadline, or check with the counseling center.
