Vitacca Mitchell Scholarship
Congratulations to this year’s Vitacca Mitchell Scholar!
2021 Giovanna Dimas
Kasandra Vitacca Mitchell is a graduate of Northview High School, Class of 1988. Because of the encouragement of a teacher, she applied and received a full-ride to Stanford University where she earned a Bachelors and Masters. Kasandra is an Author, Leadership and Success Speaker who lives in a small town outside of San Antonio, Texas with her husband. This scholarship was created to give back to the high school that believed in and encouraged her, but more importantly, to award one deserving student with money towards their goals.
This scholarship is in honor of the teachers, coaches, and administrators who educate and encourage our future leaders. It will be awarded to one graduating senior who meets the following eligibility:
- Academic Achievement
- Community Involvement
- Acceptance into a degree or certificate granting institution or enlistment in the U.S. Military
- Two (2) Letters of Recommendation: One (1) from a school personnel and One (1) from a non-familial adult from the community
- 300-500-word essay
- 1-2 minute video
A one-time scholarship in the amount of $1000 will be awarded to a student who has been accepted into a college, university, community college, trade or technical school or has signed a contract to enlist in the US military the same year of graduation. Applicants must be a current year graduating senior from Northview High School with a minimum GPA of 3.0.
The completed online application (below) along with a high school transcript, two letters of recommendation, a typed 300-500 word essay, and the 1-2 minute video must be completed online by early-May of the year the scholarship will be awarded.
The winner will be announced at the Senior Awards Ceremony at the end of May that same year.
Kasandra Vitacca Mitchell and select volunteers, some of whom are also NVHS alumni, will review all applications.
