Seminole Ridge High School junior Emily Keogh was awarded a $1,000 scholarship May 14 from the Girl Scouts of Southeast Florida for her excellence in leadership.
The scholarship was awarded based on an essay Keogh wrote about her volunteer work with Quantum House and how visiting the organization inspired her to spearhead an Acreage community-wide supply drive.
Keogh represented the school in the 2014-15 Palm Beach Youth Leadership class, which includes workshops and seminars around the county throughout a student’s junior year.
Students in the class have the chance to work with county leaders and organizations to foster knowledge of their communities and to hone their leadership skills.
“I’m honored to receive such a generous scholarship, and I’m looking forward to whatever the future has in store for me,” said Keogh, who will be the senior class president next school year.
