Carroll Education Foundation (CEF) recently awarded $10,000 in scholarships to Dragon seniors at a special ceremony at Carroll Senior High School. Nearly 60 Carroll seniors applied for scholarships this year. Ten students received $1,000 scholarships based upon a blind review of six application areas: academic, extracurricular, volunteer, employment, essay and teacher/community recommendations.
