Chelsea Casler wins $2,500 scholarship

The PEO STAR Scholarship was awarded to Chelsea Casler, senior at Hayden High School, for the 2009-10 academic year. Chelsea is the daughter of Tracy Moyers and was recommended for this award by Chapter UO of Mission Viejo, Calif. Casler has been accepted to attend University of Denver where she plans to study international relations in the fall.

The PEO STAR scholarship is a $2,500 award based on excellence in academics, leadership, extracurricular activities, community service, and potential for future success. The program is open to young women who are citizens or legal permanent residents of the U.S. or Canada and who are graduating high school seniors at the time of application. A student must be recommended by a PEO chapter.

The PEO Sisterhood, founded in 1869 at Iowa Wesleyan College, is an international philanthropic and educational organization interested in bringing to women increased opportunities for higher education. There are about 6,000 local chapters in the U.S. and Canada. The PEO Sisterhood has given nearly $180 million in financial assistance to more than 77,000 women.
