Joy Mills, a student at Northland Preparatory Academy, has been awarded a $33,000 per year President’s Scholarship from Pacific Lutheran University (PLU), a private liberal arts university in Tacoma, Washington, and will have the chance to compete for additional university funding.
Joy was one of 103 students selected for this award, of more than 500 applicants. President’s Scholars are selected based on academic achievement, service, leadership and the potential to effect positive change and leadership in both the academic and co-curricular life of PLU. On average, this year’s recipients scored a 1306 SAT test score, 30 ACT test score, and have a 3.98 GPA. All President’s Scholars will be interviewed on the PLU campus in February to compete for one of 10 Harstad Founder’s Scholarships, worth $38,000 per year, or one of five full-tuition Regents’ Scholarships.
