Irene Daniels Scholarship
The Walled Lake PTSA Council established a Scholarship Fund in the memory of Irene Daniels. Mrs. Daniels was a mother at Twin Beach Elementary and was very involved with the school’s PTA. She also served as secretary of the Walled Lake PTSA Council and assisted other PTA’s. Mrs. Daniels was described as a wonderful, caring and giving person. Unfortunately, Irene Daniels became ill and passed away in 1964. She leaves a legacy of caring for children, which continues today.
The purpose of the Irene Daniels Scholarship is to encourage worthy students to undertake a post-secondary course of study. The Irene Daniels Scholarship Committee reviews applications and qualifications of students from Walled Lake Central, Walled Lake Northern and Walled Lake Western with one winner selected from each high school every year. The PTSA Council bases some of the criteria of the scholarship on volunteerism, leadership, school activities/honors, and recommendations from counselors or teachers. The three students selected each receive $750 to use toward future educational costs.
You can apply for the Irene Daniels Scholarship completing the scholarship application form. The deadline for the 2023-24 Irene Daniels Scholarship is Monday, March 11, 2024. Winners will be notified by Tuesday, April 16, 2024.
