Morgan Agia, daughter of Mike Agia, manager of the Collision Center at Fred Beans Ford of Boyertown, has been awarded a Community Service Scholarship from the Pennsylvania Automobile Association Foundation. Morgan will receive $5,000 a year for 2010-2011 and 2011-2012 and be eligible to apply for two additional years of scholarship assistance.
Community Service Scholarship Awards are available to the children of automotive dealership personnel who have demonstrated charitable characteristics on a continual basis.
Morgan, a senior at Schuylkill Valley High School, will attend Ithaca College in Ithaca, NY, in the fall, majoring in Speech Communications with a minor in Theater. She is a member of the SVHS Girls’ Soccer Team, Chorus, Panthers On Parade, National Honor Society, Spanish Club and Youth Alive. Morgan lives in Leesport and donates her time to Relay For Life, Northern Berks Food Bank and many activities through Leo Club, PYEA, SODAA and St. Ignatius of Loyola Church.
The purpose of these Community Service Scholarship Awards is not only to highlight the academic achievements of young people, but also to showcase the philanthropic contributions of today’s youth who are working to make a charitable impact and legacy in their communities.
The Foundation looks for applicants who are the children of Pennsylvania dealership employees and who are involved in activities, projects, or charitable events which assist in fulfilling unmet needs in their communities by creating or supporting an organization or task force to address those needs, and/or volunteering a substantial amount of time to worthwhile organizations or causes.
Community Service Scholarship Awards can be used to pursue any degree of study, including automotive technology.
