The West Virginia Department of Education is pleased to announce the recipients of the 2021-2022 Albert Yanni Scholarships. Twenty-five career technical education (CTE) students were chosen out of 100 applicants to receive a $2,000 scholarship for the upcoming school year.
Locally, Hunter Wamsley of Greenbrier East High School and Amberlie Wilson of Greenbrier West High School were selected as scholarship recipients.
The Albert Yanni Scholarship provides CTE students an opportunity to pursue advanced education and/or training related to their career aspirations. State Superintendent W. Clayton Burch said the application process is rigorous with two rounds of thorough and extensive review of every applicant.
“These 25 students exemplify excellence in both the classroom, their fields of interest and their communities,” Superintendent Burch said. “We are not only impressed by their academic successes, but also their interpersonal and self-management skills, leadership abilities and preparedness for post-secondary education.”
