ST. GEORGE — The St. George Chapter of BYU Management Society recently honored seven area graduating high school seniors and one BYU student with cash scholarships to help them continue their education.
The scholarships were based on a weighted scale that included academic record, community service, written essay, need based, and extra curricular activities. Not all the recipients are headed to Brigham Young University, nor is it a requirement, as some will enroll at Dixie State University, Utah State University, and Southern Utah University.
Since 2011, the St. George Chapter has provided $71,000 in scholarships to graduating high school seniors and BYU Marriott School of Management students from Washington County.
The BYU Management Society is a premier organization for business professionals to network, develop their careers, serve their communities and support BYU and the Marriott School.

This worldwide network of business professionals has a shared vision of moral and ethical leadership and a common code of business conduct and integrity.

Those who received a 2021 scholarship were Alli Giles, Ashlin Sullivan, Brock Esplin, Emily Ord, Noelle Sampson, Seth Seegmiller, and Sydney Clove, along with Teisha Truman, a former Washington County student and current MAcc student attending BYU-Provo.
