Carly Fleming is Discover Card scholarship recipient

Cedarcrest student Carly Fleming is one of nine state high school juniors who will receive a $2,500 scholarship from Discover Card.
   Discover Card is awarding nearly $1.5 million in scholarships to high school juniors as part of the Discover Card Tribute Award Scholarship program.
   This year, winners were selected from a pool of nearly 7,500 applicants. While students must maintain a minimum 2.75 cumulative grade point average to qualify, they must also demonstrate accomplishments in three of four areas: special talents, leadership, obstacles overcome and community service.
   Once the student graduates high school, scholarship funds may be applied to various education or training programs such as any certification or licensing in a trade, a two-year technical degree, an associates' degree or a four-year degree at a college or university in any field of study.
