CRx Construction is offering a $1,000 scholarship to a college-bound senior at Cape Henlopen High School. Applications are due by Friday, April 16.
CRx’s mission in building custom homes is to be an advocate for its clients. Now CRx would like Cape High seniors to help the company be an advocate for the community.
CRx owner Dion Lamb said, “We love to find creative ways to give back to the community and hope this is a program we can expand in the future.
“We are offering a scholarship to the senior who can give us the best way to use $1,000 to improve our community. Write an essay, put together a presentation, whatever way you feel best presents your thoughts on doing good in the community and how you would implement your idea. There is one catch. If you win the scholarship, you will have to make your plan on how to spend the $1,000 for the good of the community a reality,” Lamb said. “We will offer assistance in the execution of the plan, but we want you to be in charge. The scholarship will not be awarded without execution of the community improvement plan.”
Lamb said, “We purposely created this to be wide open to any ideas and didn’t want to limit the creativity of our students. We love that the winner will also gain the satisfaction of seeing their idea come to life. As a coach and father, I have seen firsthand how smart and creative our local students are, and I can’t wait to see what ideas they propose.”
