Doylestown, PA (June 8, 2020) – During these trying times, it’s even more important to recognize and celebrate the achievements of Bucks County students. Following remote collaboration with each of the County’s 19 public high schools, Foundations Community Partnership is delighted to announce the 2020 Partnership in Education Scholarship awardees. Despite school closures, guidance counselors and school administrators from every public high school in Bucks County submitted nominations for their students that best demonstrated a commitment to community service, academic performance, and quality of character.
