Each year all Tri-Valley High School teachers are asked to submit names for the students they feel portray the most “Mason like” characteristics. From these, a winner is chosen for the Mason Spencer Scholarship of $500. This scholarship winner is typically announced at the end of year Academic Awards assembly.
For the selection process, the Tri-Valley High School staff can nominate any student from the Senior class as a candidate for the Mason Spencer Scholarship. Staff will include either bullets points or write a brief explanation of the “Mason like” characteristics the candidate possesses.
The chairman of the committee will compile the list of nominees. At least one meeting will be scheduled with the selection committee (made up of middle school and high school teachers). Each nominee will be discussed in detail and then an anonymous vote will be taken. The Senior nominee with the majority of the votes will be selected. In the case of a tie, the nominees who tied will be discussed again and another vote will be taken. The second vote will only be for those candidates who had a tie vote. This will continue until there is a sole winner. The chairman will contact Tamara Spencer with the name of the student selected to be the recipient of the Mason Spencer scholarship. The student selected will be announced during Tri-Valley’s High School Senior awards ceremony.
