Cherokee HS Senior Wins 2024 Maritza Mott Scholarship

A Cherokee High School Class of 2024 graduate has won the annual Maritza Mott Scholarship!

Brenda Hilario earned the $1,000 memorial scholarship, which is open to one graduating senior and awarded based on an application, essay questions and references. 
The first in her family to attend college, Brenda will study entrepreneurship at Kennesaw State University to support her plans of opening her own business.

An eight-year soccer player and team captain, Brenda is an active volunteer with Interact Club and Sociedad Honoraria Hispánica (Spanish Honors Society).

Through her community service, Brenda said she has “gained confidence to talk to and interact with other people.  I have also improved in my leadership and have grown to be a better person.  By talking and interacting with more people, I will have a positive impact on others.”
