In 2019 Alleghenies United Cerebral Palsy initiated our first-ever Scholarship Fund. With the help of donations received, we awarded scholarships to a Central Cambria School District (Ebensburg, PA) and a South Western School District (Hanover, PA) graduating senior pursuing a college degree in the Human Services field.

Thank you for investing in the future of young adults in our communities!

Towards the Future

Valorie Hanover

One of the schools that was chosen for our 2019 Be the Future Scholarship was South Western High School in Hanover, PA. The student that was chosen for this scholarship was Valorie Dzbynski. The Dollar for Scholars selection committee at her school chose Valorie because of her she had strong academic credentials, her teachers report she is a eager learner, works well with other students, and always gets the job done.  She is also known to be conscientious, kind, quiet, and unassuming. As a result, Valorie is well respected by peers and teachers. Upon graduation, Valorie is planning to continue her education at Lebanon Valley College where she will study psychology.

Valorie was the perfect candidate for the first-ever Be the Future Scholarship. We are so excited for all of her future endeavors, and look forward to hearing about her success in years to come.

Lucas Taylor

Central Cambria High School in Ebensburg, PA was also chosen for the 2019 Be the Future scholarship. The high school’s scholarship committee selected Lucas Taylor as this years recipient. Lucas will be attending Pennsylvania Highlands Community College in the fall with a major in Liberal Arts/History.  He has volunteered at the Ebensburg Presbyterian Church on numerous occasions and has assisted his dad and brother in displaying American flags in his hometown of Colver, PA on national holidays. Lucas loves all things related to history and is the president of the Central Cambria High School Young Conservatives Club.  

Lucas is an absolute joy with whom to interact and the Committee felt that he was very deserving of this award. The look on his face when his name was announced was absolutely priceless and Lucas and his parents are so appreciative of this award.
