Rockville High School

Eight Montgomery County Public School Students (MCPS) are recipients of full-tuition, four-year scholarships awarded by the Posse Foundation.

According to a news release, the students were honored at a ceremony held at the Lincoln Theatre in Washington, D.C.

The Posse program identifies public high school students with extraordinary academic and leadership potential that may have been overlooked by traditional college selection processes.

Nationally, 56 colleges and universities each offer full-tuition, merit scholarships to students throughout the country and create multicultural teams—called Posses—on each campus. These student teams receive professional guidance before and throughout college and provide support to one another. On campus, these students serve in important leadership roles.

Below is a list of this year’s MCPS Posse scholarship recipients. According to a news release the students come from six high schools and will be attending four different colleges.
