The scholarship was posted on Stars and a number of students applied. A scholarship committee was formed to review and score all the applications. Students were chosen to receive the scholarships.
Um, one thing though: evidently, Herr Morley failed to confirm the funding for the scholarship, i.e., whether it would be renewed by the donor.
Nope. (He made this mistake last year with a number of scholarships.)
And so, after the selections were made and students chosen, go-to faculty Kurt Meyer and Kay Ryals were notified by Morley that the scholarships would not be awarded after all.
There were sparks, gnashing of teeth—dark, dark mutterings.
Before Mr. Morley came on board a couple of years ago, all the funding was confirmed before the scholarships were announced.
No longer, evidently.

Instructions for 2012 - 2013 Application
DEADLINE: February 22, 2013.”
Underneath that, this appeared:
I clicked on the “here” link. Nothing happened.
I tried another browser. Still nothing.
