Scholarship Program

The Metropolitan Houston Chapter Scholarship Program was organized late in the year 2000 and was first awarded in June 2001, making this the 17th consecutive year that your chapter has given a college scholarship. After having been nominated by an active member of MHC who is their parent/grandparent, the student must submit all required documents, including an application form, three confidential references, their SAT/ACT test scores, a letter of acceptance into college, their high school transcript, and a 500-word essay. 

This year we had five grandchildren nominated to compete for the scholarship; all should be considered outstanding scholars.  Two of our five candidates had a perfect GPA, were valedictorian of their class, and had outstanding test scores, putting them in direct contention for the scholarship.  Only a slight difference in the ranking of their references and essays lead to the final selection of your 2017 MHC Scholarship recipient, Michaela Christine Reinhart.  Michaela will attend Duke University in the fall as a member of their Class of 2021.

In addition to her academics, here are some of Michaela’s extracurricular activities:

-       4 year member of cross country team, captain in senior year

-       4 year member of Honor Council, chair in senior year

-       3 year member of Beta Club, a national educational youth organization that promotes the ideals of academic achievement, character, service, and leadership

-       2 year member of Student Council – junior class president and senior class student body president

-       4 year member of Service Club promoting and participating on service events such as Dance Blue which raised money for childhood cancer patients

-       2 year member Pep Band/Concert Band as a percussionist

-       3 year member of Vocations Crew youth group

-       2 year member of Spanish National Honor Society and National Honor Society

-       Participated in National Student Leadership Council 10-day medical career orientation experience at Georgia Tech

-       Went on a one week mission trip to Haiti

Her grandparents, Ray and Rita Casserly, accepted Michaela Christine Reinhart’s scholarship award on her behalf.
