Haven Slocum Awarded $1,500

Haven Slocum Awarded $1,500

Congratulations to Ford High School sophomore, Haven Slocum. Haven has been awarded $1,500 from the Quinlan ISD Education Foundation to attend “The Congress of Future Science and Technology Leaders” in Boston, Massachusetts, this summer. Haven Slocum is the first recipient of the student enrichment grant received for this school year and the second student to apply to and receive a student enrichment grant from the Quinlan ISD Education Foundation.

This past year, the Foundation opened-up a new initiative for up to $2,000 each year. The initiative is intended for current students in Quinlan ISD to enrich their personal educational goals, while they are a student of the district. According to the QISD Education Foundation Vice President of Programs, Barbara Norris, “It is not intended for scholarships after high school. We want this money to be used by students like Haven to further their educational experience while a student in QISD.”

The Congress is very comprehensive. She will meet world leaders, attend training in various capacities, and receive an inside view of the future of the science and technology industry. “I wish to participate in this event because I am intrigued by the thought of being able to meet people who give their lives to science and inventing. This event will help me achieve my goals for my future because I plan on being an Archaeologist. Everything is becoming digitalized and that means more science and technology involvement. This will help me in my college endeavors. Many colleges look for students who have experience in these kinds of events, and I feel like it would benefit my getting into a favorable and exemplary university,” said Slocum. Slocum further says that the event will expose her to a new side of the American culture that she has never been exposed.

Slocum is in the Winter Guard at Ford High School and a member of the after-school ACE program where she works in the print shop. She had strong letters of recommendations from her teachers and Marlo Scott, counselor of Ford High School, for being a very disciplined student. She is the daughter of Joshua and Shannon Slocum and step-father Scott Borden. “Because of this grant, it has now become affordable for our family for her to pursue this kind of educational opportunity. Over and over again, Quinlan ISD has proven to be the best educational choice for my daughter and I’m proud she is a student of this district,” said Shannon Slocum.

“We are extremely honored to provide this grant to Haven. We have high expectations and hope for her and all Quinlan ISD students. We wish her the very best,” said Barbara Norris.
