Homeschooled senior student Katherine Harland has been named the recipient of the Ponte Vedra Focus Blog Writing Scholarship, sponsored by The Volen Group, Keller Williams Realty Atlantic Partners. She will receive a $1000 check towards college expenses.
The annual award recognizes an area high school senior who writes “the most compelling community-oriented blog post.” Harland’s blog article entitled, “Smile through the Miles: A Closer Look at Three Engaging Spots That Will Maintain Your Sanity while Running in Jacksonville” was selected from numerous entries.
Harland was inspired by her four years of running for Mandarin High School.
“Running has been my rock throughout high school, helping me decompress from stressful academic times and connect with treasured friends. I’ve run thousands of miles all over the city of Jacksonville,” said Harland.
Katherine Harland has not made her final college choice but has many great ones to choose from.
Harland’s article, along with the top entries, will all be posted on the Ponte Vedra Focus blog in the next few weeks.
Congratulations to Katherine Harland on a job well done. For details on the scholarship, which will be offered again next year, see the following link: https://www.pontevedrafocus.com/scholarship/
