Senior High School student Eric Donohue has been named a national finalist of the Most Valuable Student Scholarship Program by the Elks National Foundation. Twenty students from across the county receive a scholarship of at least $20,000. 

ENF is a nonprofit organization that focuses on veteran aid, charity and investment in student education. After the initial application, several thousand students advance to the state finalist level and then 500 move on to the next level of regional finalist. The 500 regional finalists each receive an award of $4,000. From the 500 regional finalists, 10 males and 10 females are selected as national finalists and are invited to attend the Most Valuable Student Leadership Weekend in Chicago, Illinois, in late April. The finalists learn leadership skills, explore Chicago, and interview for the top national awards.
