Plumbline Services values education and has a great appreciation for ALL career paths in life. Many of your academically advanced students may aspire to be doctors, lawyers, and engineers: some who are driven by caring for others may be on their way to becoming teachers and social workers: still others are gifted with talents of skilled trades and will be our next generation of welders, mechanics, plumbers or heating and air conditioning technicians. ALL of these careers are vital to society; and we believe that all students should have the opportunity to receive a continuing education scholarship.

 These scholarships are unique in many ways:

 1.    There is NO GPA requirement for these scholarships.

 2.    ALL career paths are eligible.

 3.   The student can attend a 4-year college, 2-year college, vocational college, or a trade school.

 4.    The student has NO PART in applying for these scholarships.

 5.    Students are nominated with an essay written by a parent, teacher, counselor, neighbor, employer, etc. The essay should convey why this high school senior is an ExtraordinAIRy Treasure to our future by including an overview of the nominee's life skills in action such as perseverance in overcoming difficult circumstances, integrity, kindness, and commitment to community to name a few. Tell us who your nominee is at heart.

 A Plumbline Services Committee will select the five scholarship recipients. All scholarships are a one-time scholarship.

 Plumbline Services will accept nominations through April 30th, 2018.

 I ask that you forward this information to your teachers and parents encouraging them to nominate a senior whom they feel is a treasure.

 This is an opportunity for you to recognize a student based on more than grades. Some of our greatest treasures may not be students who do well academically but have a gift in an area that is necessary for "the world to go around". I ask that you think of all of your students and nominate those who are treasures to our future.

 So, how can you nominate a senior? Visit and complete the nomination form.
