Pete's List of Excellence in History and Government Scholarship

Community Foundation of West Chester-Liberty

Raymond (Pete) Peters put aside his educational aspirations to put his life on the line in World War II. After legislation was signed enabling WWII veterans to receive their high school diploma, Pete received his diploma during a celebration for his 75th birthday. Like Pete, Pete’s List, recognizes two college-bound Lakota High Seniors, one from West and one from East, who have excelled in History and Government. Scholarship will be awarded to a high school senior who demonstrates superior capability, interest and understanding of World and U.S. History subjects, including Government and Civics. The recipient must be in the top third of their graduating class as calculated through the 1st semester of senior year or time of award, whichever is available; be a well-rounded student who may work to pay for college education and/or may be involved in other extracurricular Activities; have been accepted to and planning to attend a 2 or 4-year college or university program. Award will not be based on student’s preference of major or course of study.
