Reynolds and Reynolds Names 2007 College Scholarship Winners;
Area Scholars Excel in Classroom and Community

DAYTON, OHIO – June 11, 2007 – Reynolds and Reynolds today announced nine recipients of 2007 Reynolds Scholarship awards. The scholarships recognize students with exemplary academic achievement and a demonstrated commitment to volunteer and community activity.

The Reynolds Scholarship Program was created by the Reynolds and Reynolds Company Foundation in 1989 and provides scholarships to college students who are children of Reynolds employees. Since the program began, the Reynolds Foundation has awarded nearly $400,000 in scholarships.

“The annual competition to become a Reynolds scholar draws extraordinarily talented students, and the competition this year was no exception,” commented Bob Brockman, chairman of Reynolds and Reynolds. “Impressive academic achievement combined with community and school involvement characterized this year’s class of recipients. It’s gratifying to see support from Reynolds can also help encourage these young people as they reach even greater success and achievement in college.”

The Foundation typically awards between six and nine scholarships annually for undergraduate students ranging from one-year grants of $1,500 to a four-year renewable grant of $2,500 each year. Recipients are determined by considering academic achievement and potential; extracurricular school and community activities, including work experience; and, the applicant’s written statement of goals and aspirations, letters of recommendation, and any unusual personal or family circumstances.

This year, the Foundation awarded nine scholarships, with six scholars from area communities. Here are the 2007 Reynolds Scholarship recipients.
