Lindbergh senior earns national scholarship

Lindbergh High School student Sarah Reinsel recently was honored as a semifinalist in the 44th annual national Washington Crossing Foundation Scholarship Competition.

The prestigious awards are granted to high school seniors for the best all-around presentations, including an explanation of why they are planning careers in government service, according to a news release.

The foundation noted that these students represent the most talented and accomplished of our country’s young leaders and that it is these young men and women who are dedicating themselves to public service. The foundation’s headquarters is in Bristol, Bucks County, Pa.

The Washington Crossing Foundation scholarships were inaugurated in 1969 and honor the more than 60 years of dedicated service to the nation by the late author-historian Ann Hawkes Hutton.

The scholarship pro-gram seeks to find, identify and encourage young people with the same sense of dedication and service demonstrated by George Washington and his soldiers who, under the most adverse of conditions, crossed the Delaware on Christmas night in 1776 to win the Battle of Trenton that turned the tide of the American Revolution.
