“This scholarship is in honor of Maggie Harry, a Pike student who suffered from bipolar disorder and lost her life to this terrible disease. She left a legacy of creativity and inspiration. She was a goofball and proud of it. Anyone who knew her is filled with stories of joy and wonder. Through this scholarship, we are seeking someone who exemplifies-in his or her own way-that spirit. Students applying for this scholarship should be individuals who have improved-in large or small ways-the lives in their orbit. They should have made concentrated efforts to improve themselves and incorporate creativity into their lives. They also will show care about the world beyond their immediate surroundings. The scholarship committee is less concerned with where you are studying and more focused with how your plans will contribute to you as a person. If you have any doubt about your qualifications, please apply anyway. We hope that is what Maggie would have done”.
