Hal Baldwin Scholarship 2016
The City of Schertz has established the Hal Baldwin Scholarship to encourage high school seniors who are residents of Schertz to consider public service as a career path in education, local, state and/or federal government. The scholarship honors Hal Baldwin, who served the City for more than 30 years as a civic volunteer, an employee, a Councilmember, and Mayor. Mayor Baldwin’s biography is attached as part of the application package.
The Hal Baldwin Scholarship is awarded annually on a competitive basis. Any currently enrolled high school senior residing in Schertz is eligible to apply. This includes home-schooled students as well as students who live in Schertz but attend high school in another city, state, or country.
The Scholarship award may be used for tuition or other fees or expenses for any full-time post-secondary school which is accredited by a state, regional, or national accreditation agency and which may be a traditional 2 or 4 year institution or other educational institution offering courses, degrees, or other training suitable to a public service career in education, local, state, and/or federal government.
Students desiring to be considered for the Scholarship must attend at least two Schertz City Council meetings during the months of March through April 2016, prior to submitting the application. Meetings are held the 1st, 2nd and 4th Tuesday each month, beginning at 6:00 PM. Students must sign in with the City Secretary at the meetings they are attending. At the meetings, students should follow the agenda from beginning to end and observe the elected officials, City staff, residents, and other persons at the meetings.
