 The Michael Jarek Sonognini Scholarship

Jarek Sonognini was a senior at Creekside High School when on April 12, 2017 a tragic car accident took his life.  Just weeks away from graduating, he was planning to pursue a degree to become a Diesel Technician. Many remember Jarek for his welcoming smile, his soft-spoken voice, and his kind heart. He also had a love for life that shone through when he spoke about his hobbies, his friends, and most of all his family. Seniors, as you embark on your next phase of life, stop and think about the present. It is easy to take your days for granted and wish for time to move faster but we must remember that life offers no guarantees. In collaboration with the Sonognini family, Creekside High School would like to offer a $500 scholarship to a Creekside senior planning to pursue his/her post-secondary education at a 4-year, 2 year, or technical school upon graduation.

Requirements- Submit an essay answering this question, “You have been granted a free weekend next month. How will you spend it?” Please submit all essays to Guidance by April 12.
