The recipients of the Glass Half Scholarship are selected by the scholarship committee at Elk Lake High School—- Lynda’s Alma Mater.
Per the guidelines set to match qualifying recipients to the origins of the GHF Scholarship, the committee chooses a student that lives their life with a positive attitude. The committee knows the students well and sees how they interact with others while handling the frequent challenges of high school.
Cookie fondly remembers Lynda as the one who came to school with a song in her heart every day and she wasn’t shy about singing it out loud. Always optimistic and never an unkind word to say about anyone. Not one to judge, Lynda had a gift of finding something good in everyone and making sure others could see it too.
A student with those qualities and a desire to continue their education after graduation makes them a perfect match to receive the Glass Half Full Scholarship.
