Guaynabo students at all levels earn scholarships for performance

Guaynabo Mayor Edward O’Neill

By The Star Staff

A few weeks before the end of the current school semester, Guaynabo Mayor Edward O’Neill recognized the academic performance of 228 students who attend the municipality’s public schools. The students from the elementary, intermediate and high school levels were awarded for their dedication and academic excellence throughout the year.

The largest group of recipients of the “Mayor’s Scholarship” were from the elementary level, with 79 students, followed by 78 students at the high school level and 71 students at the intermediate level. The recognition, which has become a symbol of encouragement for academic effort, consists of significant financial aid: $70 for the elementary group, $90 for intermediate level students and $120 for those in high school.

“The Guaynabo administration is proud to reward these students who put in the effort in their schoolwork during the 2022-2023 academic year,” O’Neill said. “They are being placed on the honor roll of the best public school averages within the jurisdiction of Guaynabo.”

As part of the mayor’s commitment to education and equity, the requirement to consider parents’ income for obtaining this scholarship was eliminated. The change reflects the recognition of the student’s individual effort and dedication to academic performance.
