On May 26th, senior Tommy Sutton was awarded the Dr. Stephen B. Young scholarship by the New Hope-Solebury High School Parent Teacher Forum. The scholarship, which will be awarded annually, was established this year to honor the retirement of the high school principal, Dr. Young. The criteria of the scholarship is based upon the three characters which Dr. Young embraced in his seventeen years as principal: thought, civility and joy.

The scholarship is awarded to students who (1) establish clear pattern and thoughtful engagement in the school curriculum (academics/clubs/sports),
(2) are a model of civility in their interaction among peers and adults (involvement in student government, service clubs, a peacemaker and a coalition builder) and
(3) express joy in interaction among those peers and adults as well as the academic and social aspects of school.

“Dr. Young's years of experience, success with staff and students, and his irreproachable character, calm demeanor and genuine nature will be sorely missed,” stated the Parent Teacher Forum board. “We thank him for his 17 years of wonderful service to our school district, and we wish him the very best in all future endeavors.”

Contributions, made payable to NH-S Parent Teacher Forum with a memo notation for "Dr. Young scholarship", can be dropped off in the high school office or can be mailed to: Parent Teacher Forum, c/o NH-S High School, 182 West Bridge St., New Hope, PA 18938.
