Cottonwood Place Senior Living recently awarded five local college-bound, graduating seniors the Cottonwood Place “Senior to Senior” Legacy Scholarship. In its 2nd year, Cottonwood Place is giving each of the recipients $1,000 towards their college education.
The scholarships were offered to Cottonwood High School seniors with a verified 3.0 GPA and applying for Fall 2016 admission to a college or university with the intention of obtaining a degree. Beyond the application, the Cottonwood Place Resident Scholarship Committee heard from the applicants in a 1-2 page essay about their reason for pursuing higher education along with a personal account of how a senior has affected their life, including specific examples of intergenerational experiences of the applicant.
By offering the Cottonwood Place “Senior to Senior” Legacy Scholarships, the residents are able to fulfill their mission to encourage, support, educate, and develop this generation as they move into adulthood. Cottonwood Place is an independent, assisted, and memory care community for seniors that strive to “Experience moments. Experience life.” In giving to others on an intergenerational level, they are attempting to pass on the opportunity for young people in our greater community to also “experience”!
