Congratulations to Taylor Allen who has been awarded the Widener NBC 10 Leadership Award. Widener University and the Oskin Leadership Institute, in partnership with NBC10, founded the High School Leadership Awards program in 2011 to identify the region’s high school students who embody the university’s commitment to develop and inspire leaders who affect positive change.
Each year, principals of high schools in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware are encouraged to identify one current high school junior who has demonstrated courage by standing up for what is right, found a way to address a wrong, or made a difference in a significant way at his or her school or community. Each year winners are recognized at the National Constitution Center and invited to participate in a leadership development conference at Widener.
High School Leadership Award winners who choose to enroll at Widener are named Apogee Scholars and receive a $20,000 scholarship over four years. Congratulations to Taylor for all of her hard work!
