BBB Center for Character Ethics will honor the 2015 Students of Integrity Scholarship Recipients in conjunction with the Torch Awards for Ethics luncheon.
The Students of Integrity Scholarship awards is an annual future leaders program designed to increase marketplace trust by encouraging and recognizing the ethical and character development of our future leaders and employees.
The program, founded in 2002, is open to high school juniors residing in BBB’s 21 county service area. A panel of business leaders and members of the academic community evaluate the entries. Scholarships are awarded to the students in their senior year who personify high character through leadership, community service, and overall personal integrity and academic accomplishments. The ten recipients will each receive a $1,000 scholarship toward advancement of their education. Scholarships are made possible by Columbia Gas of Ohio.
The awards are to be presented at the Torch Awards for Ethics luncheon, which honor central Ohio companies that embody the BBB’s mission of advancing marketplace trust on October 20, 2015; in Columbus.
