Two high school students in the San Diego Unified School District -- one from Madison, one from San Diego High -- have received four year, $10,000 scholarships from the Nordstrom department store. Krisslyn Johnson of Madison High and Anita Agoh of the School of Science and Technology (SciTech) each received the college scholarships from the store. The scholarship provides the students with $2,500 per year for four years.
In 2011, students in the 28 states where Nordstrom currently has an operating full-line store will be eligible to apply for a Nordstrom Scholarship. Eighty scholarships will be awarded. Each scholarship will be paid out in equal installments of $2,500 over four years to the selected student's college of choice. Students must be attending a four-year college or university.
