Get up, go to class – and say ‘Thank You’

Nearly 100 seniors crowded into the Cabot High School Loft to hear the good news Monday of scholarships they have been chosen to receive. This class, the same as others, also received an admonition formerly delivered by longtime CPF member Carolyn Park – now delivered by CPF member John C. Thompson.

“Make sure you go to class,” Thompson said in his remarks. “Mom’s always got us up; Dad’s always got us up. But now, when you go to college, it’s going to up to your cell phone to wake you up, or set the alarm clock,” Thompson said.

Park, in previous presentations, warned students of the high rate of first year dropouts from college because students did not get to class on their own.

Thompson said that since 1992, CPF has handed out 532 scholarships worth $537,000. Monday’s total is 90 scholarships worth $92,550, he said.

Nearly $22,000 of the total is from school district employees.

Thompson added that one benefit of being on the selection committee is to read the scholarship applications. “It is amazing what each and every one of you do. The grade points you have, the activities you are doing in your community, your school, your churches… the reward of serving on the committee is to watch you all, and what you do in life,” he said.

Other committee members are: Fred Campbell, Mike Verker, Angela Wallace, Nina Butler, Carol Jones, Cal Aldrich and Stephen Tipton.

Principal Henry Hawkins also emphasized the responsibility of each recipient to say “Thank you” to donors and sponsors. Face-to-face if they were at the presentation, and by written notes before graduation.
