16 JCPS seniors awarded Vogt Educational & Leadership Scholarships

Award recognizes students for their academic achievements and leadership in and out of the classroom

Sixteen seniors from Jefferson County Public Schools (JCPS) have been awarded the 2019 Vogt Educational & Leadership Scholarship, which recognizes the students for their academic achievements and leadership in and out of the classroom. The students were celebrated for their accomplishments during an annual awards luncheon on March 18 at The Olmsted.

Prior to his death in 1999, Henry V. Heuser Sr. established the endowed scholarship fund at the Community Foundation of Louisville to provide $10,000 college scholarships annually to remarkable JCPS high school seniors. This special award honors exceptional students throughout Jefferson County who have demonstrated high standards of scholarship, leadership, character and citizenship. Including this year, more than $2.7 million has been awarded to 291 students.

Henry V. Heuser Jr. hosted the annual awards luncheon and presented the scholarships. He was joined by Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer, JCPS Superintendent Dr. Marty Pollio, JCPS principals, more than 100 business and community leaders, and several university and college presidents from the region who have contributed additional scholarship incentives if the awardees attend their colleges.

Student winners are selected based on SAT/ACT scores and cumulative GPAs, as well as demonstrated community and campus leadership, participation in extracurricular activities, and recommendations from principals and community leaders.
