Wheaton High School Student Receives Posse Scholarship

Twenty-three of the county school system's students—the largest number ever for the system—will receive full-tuition, four-year college scholarships from the Posse Foundation.

More good news on Montgomery County Public Schools: Twenty-three of the county school system's students—the largest number ever for the system—will receive full-tuition, four-year college scholarships from the Posse Foundation, according to a county school system statement.

This year, the county school system's 23 student winners come from 14 schools. The recipient at Wheaton High School, Taylor N. Lyles, will be attending Bucknell University.

The county school system had 15 Posse Foundation scholarship students last year, the statement added. 

"The Posse program identifies public high school students with extraordinary academic and leadership potential that may have been overlooked by traditional college selection processes," according to the statement.

The full-tuition scholarships are offered by 44 colleges and universities, which create multicultural teams—called Posses—on each campus. "These student teams receive professional guidance before and throughout college and provide support to one another. On campus, these students serve in important leadership roles," the statement added.
