SHARE East High student gets $20,000 scholarship

Andrew Draper, an East High senior who lives in Midvale, has been selected to receive a $20,000 scholarship through the Samsung-American Legion program.

He is one of seven students awarded the scholarships nationwide. Scholarships are awarded on the basis of academic record, civic achievements and financial need, and recipients must be direct descendants of U.S. wartime veterans.

The Samsung Group endowed the scholarship fund, administered by the American Legion, to show appreciation to U.S. veterans who came to the aid of Korea during the Korean War.
