Archmere seniors Sofia Alvarez and Rebekkah Kehoe have both been awarded scholarships from the AAUW Wilmington Branch. The funds will go toward Sofia’s tuition at the University of Delaware where she will study International Relations and Rebekkah’s tuition at Moravian College where she will study Elementary Education and Psychology. Both applicants displayed excellence in their academics, extracurricular activities and communication skills.
Sofia is also a recipient of the annual Beau Biden Memorial Scholarship. Named in honor of former Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden, who passed away in 2015 at age 46, the scholarship was established by the I Could Do Great Things Foundation, an independent Delaware-based philanthropy. The scholarship honors college-bound high school seniors from Delaware “who embody the virtues of Beau Biden, who exhibit qualities of leadership, community, civility, respect, and a strong moral compass.”
Sofia was also awarded the Jewish Fund for the Future’s 2020 Theodore H. Ashford Award for Leadership in Community Service. The scholarship award is designated to a high school student in Delaware who demonstrates an outstanding commitment to community service.
