Ship High School Senior to Receive PA House Scholarship, Kauffman Says

HARRISBURG – Rep. Rob Kauffman (R-Cumberland/Franklin) today congratulated Heather Hockenberry, a senior from Shippensburg Area High School, for being selected as a recipient of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives Scholarship.

“Heather is already an accomplished young woman, and I have no doubt her future will be filled with success. I’d like to personally congratulate Heather for being selected for this year’s scholarship and wish her well in her future academic endeavors,” Kauffman said. “This scholarship is highly competitive, with high school seniors from around the Commonwealth submitting applications, and I’m so pleased that a student from our area will be receiving one of the two awards.”

Heather Hockenberry is the daughter of Jeff and Chris Hockenberry. She plans to attend Shippensburg University this fall.

The four-year scholarships are valued at the tuition level equivalent of one semester at a State System of Higher Education School (approximately $3,000 per year).

In addition to grade point average, factors taken into consideration for the awards are a student’s commitment to community, leadership qualities, extracurricular activities and financial need.

The scholarship program is administered through the Foundation for Enhancing Communities. 
The Office of the Chief Clerk of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives assists in facilitating the scholarship program. Scholarships are awarded through an independent panel of judges chosen by the foundation, and tax money is not used. The scholarships are funded through individual and corporate donors.
