Students at The Clarkdale Attendance Center are remembering a classmate that died from accidental death by starting a scholarship in honor of his name.
The Max Robinson Scholarship consists of three cash incentives one for five-hundred dollars and two in the amount of two-hundred and fifty dollars.
This scholarship is annual and available for any senior on campus; students must first write an essay about the qualities that Robinson left behind which are the love of God, country, service, and friendship.
A committee will then review candidates with strong essays and make a decision.
“We loved Max, a great, great, deal and we certainly appreciated everything he did and the life he lived before us. "Said Dr. Roy McNeil Asst. principal.
“It’s a good opportunity for students to learn from Max, and have a good opportunity to go to college." Said Lane Davis, Clarkdale High School senior.
This year’s scholarship has already been given to recipients when organizers with the scholarship raise money:they wear t-shirts saying live life to the max.
Solomon Roberts is the recipient for this year's max scholarship, and another recipient will be announced at the senior awards later this month.
