Fort Plain senior, Travis Hearingshaw, awarded elite scholarship

TravisFort Plain High School student Travis Herringshaw has been selected as a 2015 QuestBridge National College Match Scholarship recipient. He is one of 657 students chosen for this honor, out of 13,264 applicants. Students selected for the scholarship are “matched” to a very selective partner college—admitted with a guaranteed full, four-year scholarship, including tuition, room and board, and other expenses. Travis has been matched with Haverford College, just outside of Philadelphia. He is the son of Brenda Herringshaw.

According to a press release from QuestBridge, “The caliber of this year’s College Matches is exceptional. In addition to an average unweighted GPA of 3.91, the middle 50% have received between 1890-2140 on the SAT (out of 2400), and between 29-33 on the ACT (out of 36). Academically, 96% rank in the top 10% of their class, including 28% who rank 1st in their class. Financially, their median household income is $30,245, and 84% qualify for free or reduced price lunch. The majority of these QuestBridge Scholars—75%—are also among the first generation in their families to attend a four-year U.S. college.”
