Sterling Scholars


The 2018-2019 local Sterling Scholars winners were announced on November 30th to Morgan High—several anticipatory weeks after applications were submitted.

The Sterling Scholar program was developed by The Deseret News and KSL Broadcast Group in order to reward seniors for their accomplishments throughout high school. Students apply in hopes of being chosen for one of the sixteen categories of achievement—those chosen will continue to build their portfolio within that category as well as continue to develop leadership, serve the community, highlight academic performance, and practice interviewing skills. To be considered, students need to have a minimum of a 3.0 GPA, a competitive ACT score, have taken advanced classes, and can demonstrate leadership and service in a variety of categories. 

Most colleges and universities in Utah offer scholarships and other forms of financial assistance based off of how far participants proceed through the program. Carol Pentz at the high school advises over the Sterling Scholar program and stated: “Morgan High School has an outstanding group of students who have been working for years to achieve this recognition. We look forward to their success at the Northeast Region Sterling Scholar competition at Utah Valley University on March 18, 2019”
